Baxter Disappointed With Poor Start

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter, was disappointed with his side's poor start against Raja Casablanca.

Osaguona Christian Ighodaro headed past a helpless Brilliant Khuzwayo in the fifth minute, as Chiefs slumped to a 1-0 first leg defeat in their CAF Champions League tie and Baxter feels they should have had a goal of their own.

"Basically we gave them a goal, we've mapped their set-plays very well, and I'm very disappointed that we did that to start with," Baxter said after the game.

"It's in the start of the game, where we should be sharp, we give them a goal and basically, for 90 minutes they had one chance and we dominated the game.

"We play the ball without risking too much and I think the chances we created it's almost amazing we haven't got a goal on the board and we haven't, now we have to go to their place."

"I was disappointed in them as team, and that's why I'm most disappointed in us, because I think we should have put them to bed."

Baxter feels that Chiefs could get something in the second leg in Morocco.

"It's going to be different in their place but if we play in transition and if we stable and dangerous  on our set-plays, I think we'll give them a good game. So this tie is no over," he added,
