Baxter: The Players Did Well

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter had mixed feelings about their performance in their 2-0 win over Maritzburg United on Saturday night.

Amakhosi dominated for the most part and secured the victory thanks to goals from Knowledge Musona and George Lebese.

Baxter feels that had they got their second goal earlier, then they would have run riot but feels that they let Maritzburg back into the game.

"I thought in the first 35 minutes of the first-half we played some outstanding football. Then it was about playing against a compact defence and picking our way through with movement and passing," he said.

"I thought the players did really well. And then when we went 1-0 up and they switched off and allowed a couple of chances in the last 10 minutes of the first-half.

"We went in and said that we needed to refocus, but we didn't. We came out and we needed 10 minutes to get back into a rhythm, and that period became about hitting people on transitions.

"It became a different and we got into that game, and then I thought our football was outstanding. If we had got an earlier second goal we could have run away with it."

Regarding the upswing in form of striker Knowledge Musona, he added, "I think Knowledge has been looking sharper in training. He scored in a friendly and for his national team and that performance in training was a result of that. He looks like he's landed."
