Having squandered a big lead at the top of the table in the past, second-placed Kaizer Chiefs will believe that the gap Mamelodi Sundowns have opened at the top of the DStv Premiership can be closed.
Amakhosi moved up to second on the Premiership standings when they thumped Swallows FC 3-1 in Dobsonville last weekend, continuing their rise in recent weeks. The Soweto giants are eight points behind table-topping Sundowns, who have a game in hand.
In 2013/14 season, during Baxter's first spell at Chiefs, the Soweto giants squandered a big lead at the top of the standings and allowed Sundowns to go on and win the title. It was the same story for the 2019/20 campaign, when an Ernst Middendorp-led Chiefs lost the title on the final matchday after they had a double digit lead at some point during the season.
Now it's Amakhosi turn to try to close the gap and give Sundowns a taste of their own medicine, but Baxter and his boys will need to be consistent throughout the campaign to achieve this.
They are back on home soil at FNB Stadium this weekend when they host a City side that is currently sitting outside the top eight, due to inconsistent results in the league.
Chiefs will welcome back Njabulo Blom from suspension, but midfielder Cole Alexander is still out, serving the last of his two-game ban following his red card against AmaZulu last week.
