Baxter: We Have To Bite The Bullet

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admitted he was left extremely frustrated after his side’s 1-0 loss to MP Black Aces in an Absa Premiership match on Wednesday night.

Baxter was not happy with his side’ showing and criticised their lack of discipline and poor mental ability.

“Frustration, disappointment – I don’t think we showed the quality in terms of our technical game or the quality in terms of our mental game to wrestle the game away from Black Aces,” said Baxter.

“We lost our discipline at the finish. If we didn’t score it should have been 0-0, very much like I felt after the Sundowns game.

“But because of a lack of discipline we lose our shape and they very quickly counter with a goal.

“That is part of the game and you have to bite the bullet.”

The result sees Chiefs drop to second on the league table, three points behind Sundowns, but Baxter insists it is not over and his side are still striving to win the title.

“We are making it very, very difficult for ourselves. Two 1-0 defeats at home is not the form of a team who has aspirations to win the championship, but in terms of mathematics it is still a long way to go,” added the Amakhosi coach.

“One thing is clear – we will have to play better than that, show more character than that and apply the killer touch a lot better than we did this evening if we are going to win the championship.”
