Akpeyi: Bvuma has made all Kaizer Chiefs keepers improve

Kaizer Chiefs gloveman Daniel Akpeyi has revealed that Bruce Bvuma is providing great competition in the goalkeeping department at Amakhosi.

With the number one shot-stopper and club captain Itumeleng Khune out injured for most of the season so far, Akepyi has started most of the games in goal for the Soweto giants.

The 33-year-old Nigeria international said though that the 24-year-old Bvuma is keeping himself and Khune on his toes.

In quotes published in Kickoff, Akpeyi said: "I think it's a tough and stiff competition in the goalkeeping department.

It's a healthy one because he [Bvuma] has made everyone improve in that department.

It's unfortunate one goalkeeper has to play and probably I am fortunate to be the coach's choice at this point in time.

Remember, there was a time last season when Bvuma was playing and at this point in time I am the coach's choice to play."

Kaizer Chiefs travel to Cape Town City for a Telkom Knockout clash on Saturday.
