Baxter: A Game Of Two Halves

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter, believes the Soweto Derby could have gone either way.

Chiefs and Orlando Pirates played out to a 0-0 draw on Saturday afternoon, a result which did not favour Pirates in their hunt to chase down their rivals.

However, the AmaKhosi boss feels the draw was probably a fair result.

"To a certain degree it was a passive game. I think it was a game of two halves. I thought Pirates was a bit more in our face in the opening quarter of the first half, but we came back late on and finished the half the strongest," Baxter said after the clash.

"I think the second half was more what people wanted, it was opportunities at both ends and it could have gone either way."

"A draw at the end is probably a true reflection. Derby games are not always cut and dry affairs, there's a lot of tension involved as well as high stakes and things such as form goes out of the window, but I think it was a good game for all despite the goalless result."
