Baxter: We Misunderstood The Game Plan

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter admits their first-half performance proves they are not close to becoming the real deal yet.

Chiefs claimed back-to-back wins in the DStv Premiership for the first time this season after defeating SuperSport United thanks to Bernard Parker's brace.

Despite getting the win on the road, Baxter was not impressed with Chiefs' first-half performance.

"It was a lot more tough for me in the first half," Baxter told SuperSport TV.

"I thought we were disjointed. We misunderstood the game plan. We had a chat at half-time and I think the second half was much better tactically. We looked a lot more dangerous even when we were playing with a low block.

"I thought the players in the second half gave a good performance.

Baxter also provided an update on the injuries after Parker and Khama Billiat were taken off.

"It's quicker to mention the fit players than the injured players. The closest to coming back are Dube and Leo Castro. They back at full training but they've got to get themselves match fit so we're waiting for them.

"We don't know how bad Bernard's is. It's a bit of a hamstring. Khama's shouldn't be too bad because we took him off as a precaution to get some fresh legs on.

"I think the lads put their bodies on the line so they may get injured.

"Look, let's not get carried away. First half showed we have a long way to go before we are the real McCoy. We're very good at times when we do the job properly. We switch off at too many times and lose our confidence and our belief. We've got to get rid of that. We are slowly getting rid of it and the results are showing."
