Baxter: Good Base To Build On

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was pleased with the second-half performance from his team in their 0-0 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns on Tuesday.

The result leaves the door open for defending league champions Orlando Pirates to go top if they can beat SuperSport United on Wednesday.

Baxter admits that his team struggled in the opening 45 minutes, but was pleased with their response after the break.

"I thought we were quite poor in the first-half. I don't know if some of the lads were flat and some decision making wasn't right. We didn't play the way we can play. I was just happy to go in at half-time and change a few things," he said.

"But the lads responded well in the second-half and we played more like the Kaizer Chiefs that I like and that I know.

"We had a new central midfield. They got to play through us a bit too much because our distances in the midfield pressing weren't right.

"We got that right in the second-half and it gave us a few more opportuntites to play our good passing football, which is good when we play it and we need to do it more often.

"We have to take it one game at a time. I'm pleased with the way the players played in the second-half and I'm pleased with some of the individual performances. It's a good base to build on."
