Baxter On Why The Draw Is A Good Omen

Bloemfontein Celtic and Kaizer Chiefs played out to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday evening (17 September), in a tightly contested Absa Premiership encounter at Free State Stadium.

Both teams created some chances to win the game, however the bumpy field conditions on the night made finishing difficult.

Baxter’s decision to not start with the in-form Bernard Parker raised some eyebrows, although his replacement, Kingston Nkhatha, acquitted himself fairly well.

Additionally, Knowledge Musona got himself into some good positions on the night, however he wasn’t able to convert the half-chances that came his way.

Celtic’s Joel Mogorosi also had some good moments for his club, but he also wasn’t able to find the break through as the game ended in stalemate.

Nonetheless, Chiefs' coach Stuart Baxter is optimistic that the result can be a good omen for the rest of the season.

He told the club’s official website, “I thought both teams managed to play a good brand of football at times. Celtic gave us problems and looked dangerous every time they go forward. I never sat comfortable on my chair the whole game."

Baxter added, "Taking all the factors into consideration I have to be pleased with the draw. Last season we played a goalless draw with Celtic in the first round and came back strongly to win the league, hopefully it will be the case again.”
