Baxter: We Need To Hit Them Early

Stuart Baxter says Kaizer Chiefs need to come out swinging against Township Rollers this afternoon and grab themselves an early goal in the CAF Champions League.
 
 
The Amakhosi take a 2-1 lead into the second leg of their CCL tie in Gaborone today, however gave away a risky away goal in the first leg earlier this month.
 
Now, as Baxter’s side look to secure their place in the next round, the head coach says that they’re backing themselves to finish the job.
 
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, Baxter said, "It's a slim lead. You have to back yourself to get a result in this tie. If this was a straight final and the winner would take all, you have to back yourself to win. That’s how we approach this encounter.
 
“The guys that we selected will be equal to the task. Emphasis will be on transitions. We have to be resolute in defence. We have to take the game to them and try to hit them early. We have to be professional."
 
Meanwhile, Baxter confirmed that Reneilwe Letsholonyane, George Maluleka and Siphelele Mthembu had been left in South Africa.
 
He said, "Letsholonyane is returning from a family bereavement, while Maluleka and Mthembu are suffering from an assortment of injuries.”
 
Chiefs tackle Rollers at 15h00 this afternoon.
