Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt admits to having "huge expectations" for star Zimbabwean forward Khama Billiat.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns player failed to impress last season as he only netted two goals while also dealing with niggling injuries.

However, new Chiefs coach Hunt is confident the 30-year-old can find his way back to the top of the goal-scoring charts.

"I've got huge expectations. I know him from Zimbabwe to Ajax (Cape Town)‚" Hunt said ahead of Amakhosi's MTN8 quarter-final clash against Maritzburg United on Sunday (kick-off is at 15:00).

"Yes‚ he's older‚ but he should be a little bit more experience now‚ he's a bit wiser.

"I think the most important thing I've got to do, or we have got to do is start to get him playing to his strengths.

"Where we can get the best out of him. And that's all I'm going to try and do.

"Whatever he needs... support‚ extra work... if he's willing - and I think he is willing - I think he's got huge potential still.

"I still see him as a young boy from when he came from Zimbabwe. He's a little bit older now.

"But we've got to get him playing to his strengths‚ and that means the right areas of the field.

"I don't want to know what's gone on here before. It's got nothing to do with me.

"I just want to see what's in front of me and hopefully we can get him ... he's certainly a double figures goal-scorer in the league‚ and that's got to be the first aim.

"If he does his part the rest can do our part‚ and then we're successful."
