Why Baxter Has No Choice But To Win The League

With less than seven Absa Premiership fixtures left to be played, our beloved coach Stuart Baxter will indeed have his work cut out for himself as he tries to weave his side’s way through the run-in period of the season.

In a time where there is no room for error, anything less than a win will be deemed as crucial points dropped. With that said, does Baxter need league title success for the sake of his career at Naturena?

This is Baxter's last chance at domestic silverware for the campaign, following their exit in the Nedbank Bank cup at the hands of National First Division side Black leopards last week. The loss to Black Leopards just highlights the fact that anything can happen at this point of the season, even when going into games with confidence.

Last season, Baxter failed to win the league title due to a resurgent Mamelodi Sundowns, who crept up on Amakhosi during a time when Chiefs only had to maintain and not chase a lead.

Baxter is deemed as a high profile coach in South Africa and his reputation is based on his league successes with the Glamour Boys. Nonetheless, I feel that should we once again surrender our lead at the top of the table for two seasons in succession, it could dent Baxter’s credibility.

Fans love him and the players are drawn to his influence, but if he is unable to provide answers for the second season running, faith from the fans may grow thin.

Do you feel that Baxter has no choice but to win the league?
