JOHANNESBURG – Kaizer Chiefs’ goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma has challenged friend and teammate Brylon Petersen to dare to dream that his opportunity to ascend the pecking order will come.
Bvuma’s sentiments follows after his meteoric rise between the sticks for the Glamour Boys this season - playing in the last three matches, while he’d only featured in as many matches in the past three seasons.
The 23-year-old shot-stopper, who’s nicely filling in the void left by the injured captain Itumeleng Khune, has conceded in only one of those matches, while one of the clean sheets led his team to the semi-finals of Nedbank Cup.
In the absence of Khune, Bvuma is holding the fort, deputised by the cup-tied Daniel Akpeyi and third fiddle is played by the erratic Virgil Vries, while Petersen is fourth in contention.
“I played with Brylon in 2014 at (Bidvest) Wits, so I’ve known him for the past six - seven years. I was with him at the development ranks, and we came together this side. We are always talking and we don’t stay far from each other. He’s a positive guy and knows that his chance will come as well,” he said.
