Baxter Praises Musona & Masilela

Kaizer Chiefs' head coach, Stuart Baxter, praised his side’s win over Maritzburg United, singling out Knowledge Musona and Tsepo Masilela for special praise.

Chiefs returned to winning ways with a 2-0 win over the Team of Choice, claiming their first league victory over them since the 2010/11 season.

The result lifted the Amakhosi to fifth place on the PSL log, taking their current points tally to seven.

Baxter, speaking to the club’s official website, said, "I thought we started the game well and played with high intensity. We played good football in the first 30-35 minutes of the game. I think the players did very well.

“We then moved our foot off the peddle a little bit after the goal allowing Maritzburg to come at us. We continued playing good football in the second half with George Lebese getting a second goal. I thought we did well overall and playing at home, it was important to bounce back."

Musona followed up his midweek goal for Zimbabwe with his first goal of the season for Chiefs, something that didn’t shock Baxter, who said that he was “looking sharp ahead of this game”.

Meanwhile, of Masilela he said, "He has been superb for us. We knew that Tsepo was an outstanding player when we brought him into the squad and has done really well.”

The Glamour Boys’ next game will see them take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the Free State on Tuesday night.
