Nedbank Cup

Baxter Hints At Change In Defence System

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter has hinted that along with his technical team, they could go back to re-shuffling the defence, ahead of the Amakhosi's Nedbank Cup last 32 encounter against Edu Sports FC.
The Glamour Boys used three central defenders in their 2-0 league loss to SuperSport United on Tuesday night, and Baxter has now coded that they should go back to playing with just two central defenders. 
He told the Siya crew that they used three central defenders in order to make use of the left and right backs to attack. 
"Your observation was right. We used three central defenders and attacked with the left and right backs. If you noticed in the first half we played very well, but it was in the second half that it didn't work for us as we had George Lebese and Mandla Masango playing as wingers to attack, “ Baxter said. 
“But looking at the way we played, we have to revert back to playing with two central defenders as we are used to that system and it works for us," the Amakhosi mentor explained.
