Nurkovic is a dangerous target man who scores goals using his physical power and heading skills. He has scored in two of his past three competitive matches according to Goal.
3. Khama Billiat
The Zimbabwean forward has not had as much game time as he would like recently due to some health reasons. He has previously spoken to the media and said that he would like to play a part in making Kaizer Chiefs the champions.
Billiat's last competitive game came against Sundowns on 25 April, and a leg injury forced him to miss the next 11 games in all competitions according to KickOff.
