Baxter: We Stopped Playing

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says that his players simply stopped playing for a crucial period in the second-half as they were dumped out of the MTN8 by Orlando Pirates on Tuesday.

Amakhosi came into the game trailing 1-0 from the first-leg but got back into the match after netting the opener through Bernard Parker.

Pirates hit back with a penalty though, something that Baxter questioned, as the Sea Robbers progressed to the showpiece match with a 2-1 aggregate win.

"At the moment I don't think you want to know them (my thoughts). I was really pleased with the way we approached the game and I thought we played well in the first-half," said Baxter.

"And then for 20 minutes we stopped playing. We were almost waiting for the game to come back to us. And then just as I thought we'd ridden out the storm, we get a penalty against us that I don't see.

"I'll have to watch it very closely on DVD becuase I don't see why it is a penalty.

"When we got our goal it was game on. We get one more goal and that's another away goal. I understand why the players didn't go frantic and lose a goal at the other end. But to go from there to being as inactive as we were with the ball at the beginning of the second-half... I think there I would have liked us to continue playing football."
