Kaizer Chiefs attacker Bhongolwethu Jayiya is ready to fight for his place at the club despite finding it difficult to break into the starting 11.

Jayiya has only featured a grand total of 114 minutes of a possible 720 for Chiefs this season, starting only one of the club's eight games thus far.

The 28-year-old, who joined the Amakhosi on a free transfer from Cape Town City last year, featured for the club's reserve side in the MultiChoice Diski Challenge this past weekend, but despite an obvious struggle for form he is not ready to throw in the towel.

"Well, the main thing is Chiefs have got a different style of play that I'm getting used to, you know what I mean," Jayiya told KickOff.com.

"I'm a person who likes to be on the line but now I have to play inside, play more as a number 10 and everything.

"So that is another interesting factor that I need to bring to my game, which is coming [along] very nicely. As time goes, it's going to keep on going [better]."

Furthermore, Jayiya who is yet to score in his 17 appearance for the Glamour Boys, is not thinking of joining another club on loan despite the arrival of Khama Billiat and Lebogang Manyama in the recent transfer window.

"It is still early for loans, I still want to push myself in this club and do my best," Jayiya concluded.
