Baxter: We Didn't Get The Basics Right

Kaizer Chiefs head coach, Stuart Baxter, believes his side failed to the get basics right during their 1-0 loss to Hoffenheim.
 
 
A solitary strike from Anthony Modeste was enough to condemned Chiefs to defeat and Baxter felt there were too many mistakes from his team.
 
"For some of the players that have not played regularly, it's a chance for them to be exposed to high level football, when you play against that sort of team that plays very efficiently and very directly, then you got to make sure all the basics are right," he said after the game.
 
"We didn't get the basics right, they were too many elementary mistakes, both in their half of the field and ours, it was a good run out for the players and we hope the loading that we put in tonight will benefit us going forward."
 
Baxter added that the departure of Kingston Nkhatha and the arrival of David Zulu will force him to shuffle up the side a bit.
 
"It changes the make-up of the team, someone's got to stand up and take over from Kingston and David is probably not that number nine player like Kingston is but if we can shuffle the pack a bit, change the shape and balance maybe we can get something out of David," he added.
 
"I didn't want to play him (Zulu) tonight because it's too soon, it's too soon to put him under the microscope."
