Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has explained that he is not a fan of setting points targets.
Amakhosi, who are currently in 12th position on the DStv Premiership standings, have collected six points in six matches, which is the same number of points they had at this stage of the season last term under the tutelage of now Chippa United coach Gavin Hunt.
The Soweto giants are without a victory since beating Baroka FC 2-1 on August 25. That is, in fact, the only win they have registered this season. While he would have wanted more points at this stage of the season, Baxter has admitted he is not the type of coach to set targets.
"I am not one of those coaches who makes those targets. I have never been a fan of it. I think it brings in as much as anxiety as it does goal setting. I am not one to say that after four games I want 10 points or whatever. But definitely, I wanted more points than we have. I don't think the difference of having those points or not having them is massive. I think it's more a 10 percent, up or down. The difference is small, but the effect has been big. So we are going to need that mental strength, but I will not be setting targets," Baxter told media.
