Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says he was happy with the 2-0 Nedbank Cup win over SuperSport United on Saturday, but he was not happy with his side’s performance.
Baxter bemoaned the fact that they lacked the appropriate quality in the final third and Bernard Parker made the difference when he came onto the field.
“I am delighted to go through obviously,” said Baxter.
“I thought the first hour of the game was quite a dour performance from both teams, neither team played with the real quality to unlock the other.
“I felt when we got Bernard (Parker) on we started moving better and playing with a bit more quality.
“We saw real quality twice with the two goals.
“It’s difficult to pick your way through such tight defensive lines and to find pockets of space is difficult, and when we did we didn’t show the real quality to kick on from there – the further the game went on the more quality we showed.
“I was real pleased with the last 20/25 minutes.
“Ball possession in itself doesn’t win games, and the quality of our ball possession between the lines wasn’t good enough at times.”
