Samir Nurkovic fires kaizer chiefs to 6 points clear at the top

Kaizer Chiefs came from two goals down for a 3-2 victory over Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership clash on Saturday afternoon. Absa Premiership leaders Kaizer Chiefs moved six points clear of Mamelodi Sundowns after rallying back from two goals down to defeat Polokwane City in a five-goal thriller.

Nurkovic put out yet another man of the match display as Chiefs fought to a thrilling come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Polokwane City at Loftus Versfeld on Saturday afternoon. The Serbian provided two assists in the space of just five minutes to helps his side draw level after being 2-0 down, before his well-hit long-range strike found the back of the net just seconds later.

The 28-year-old, who took his tally this season to 13 league goals – just one behind leading scorer Gabadinho Mhango, showed true never-say-die spirit that coach Ernst Middendorp feels is the envy of many players.

Furthermore, Nurkovic isn’t concerned about bagging individual awards after edging closer to Gabadinho Mhango in the race for the Golden Boot award, saying the entire team has the same goal and that is to win the league title.  

“I want to say it is not about individual accolades. We all have the same goal – to win the title. And this award is for everyone at Chiefs,” he concluded.Up next for Amakhosi is Bloemfontein Celtic in a match which is scheduled for Wednesday night.
