Which Ten Defeats Derailed Chiefs?

Kaizer Chiefs are en route to securing a second Absa Premiership title under Stuart Baxter, and in the Englishman’s three-year tenure at the club, only 10 defeats have occurred.

This morning I look at Baxter’s incredible record on Chiefs’ bench, and which teams were able to derail his train. 

Maritzburg 1-0 (11 March 2015)
This defeat was Chiefs’ most recent loss and it was remarkably only the second time the club failed to take a win in the 2014/15 season so far. Since Baxter’s arrival in 2012, this was Chiefs’ 10th defeat. 

SuperSport United 2-0 (17 February 2015)
The Englishman’s ninth defeat came at the hands of SuperSport United. The 2-0 victory, courtesy of goals from Jeremy Brockie and Dove Wome, ended the Amakhosi’ 19-match undefeated run.

Mpumalanga Black Aces 1-0 (9 April 2014)
As the 2013/14 came to a close, Clive Barker masterminded an impressive 1-0 over Chiefs at the FNB Stadium. 

Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 (5 April 2014)
Teko Modise was the man to deny Chiefs the three points, and that 1-0 victory undoubtedly played a major role in derailing Chiefs’ Absa Premiership title race. They went on to lose to Aces, as mentioned above, just four days later. 

Platinum Stars 2-0 (12 March 2014)
With the Dikwena enjoying some great form, they managed to stall all the hard work Chiefs had done in the first half of the season by inflicting a 2-0 scoreline on Baxter’s men. Continuing to prove that Stars are the English tactician’s hoodoo team. 

Ajax Cape Town (5 November 2013)
The Urban Warriors have often had the upper hand over Chiefs on home soil, and this game proved no different as they managed to sneak a late 1-0 win over the Soweto giants. It was also Tashreeq Morris’ first goal in the league.

SuperSport United 3-1 (31 August 2013)
Matsatsantsa were the fourth team to defeat Chiefs in Baxter’s career, as they claimed a 3-1 triumph just three days into the 2013/14 season. Bradley Grobler had the decisive touch in that game.

University of Pretoria 1-0 (18 May 2013)
The outcome of this game had no impact on Chiefs’ season whatsoever as Amakhosi had already secured the Absa Premiership title. Thabo Mosadi scored the only goal of that encounter, while former Orlando Pirates striker, Aubrey Ngoma, was a thorn in their side. 

Ajax Cape Town 3-1 (1 May 2013)
The Urban Warriors delayed Chiefs’ title celebrations by one game as they thrashed Chiefs 3-1 at Cape Town Stadium. It was a fixture that saw Lebogang Manyama unpick the Glamour Boys’ defence with a brace, and his form later saw him enter into discussions with Chiefs over a potential move.

Platinum Stars 2-0 (24 November 2012)
Ending Chiefs’ unbeaten run of 11 games, Stars became the first ever team to stun Baxter and his charges. The victory was secured with goals from Mogakolodi Ngele and Henrico Botes.
