Baxter Happy With Performance

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was happy with his side’s winning performance against Moroka Swallows on Friday night, but admitted his team slacked off a little bit at times.

Goals from Kingston Nkhatha and Knowledge Musona handed the Amakhosi the victory which saw Chiefs register their eighth successive league win in the league and go ten points clear at the top of the table.

 “I think at times the players did a fantastic job,” said Baxter after the match.

“I think we had a little period where we took our foot off the accelerator in the first half and we were a little bit passive, but apart from that we should have really run out with a few more goals.”

Baxter went on to add the importance of picking up as many points as possible in every league match his side plays if they are to retain their Absa Premiership crown, irrespective of the opponent.

“We need to take full points in every game we can,” added the Chiefs coach.

“I pay the same respect to every team in the league. Every opponent in this league is a difficult opponent.”

One of the negatives in the game for Baxter was the substitution of Tsepo Masilela who had to leave the field injured in the second half.

“We are battling with injuries now – Bernard Parker was a fatigue injury (and missed the game tonight), now Tsepo has had to bite the bullet and play and now he has a bit of a hamstring worry, so we have a squad that is going to be stretched, but that is a challenge everyone has to meet,” concluded Baxter.
