Baxter: We Need To Raise Our Game

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits his side needs to raise their game ahead of Saturday’s Nedbank Cup quarterfinal clash against SuperSport United.

Chiefs’ season has taken a turn for the worst in recent times and defeat at home to Mpumalanga Black Aces on Wednesday means they have suffered back-to-back losses for the first time in two years.

Baxter, however, still believes that his side can still win silverware this season, but says they need to toughen up mentally.

“Not the way we are playing, not the way we are playing at the moment,” said Baxter.

“Everyone else will be licking their lips at the moment. If we find that little bit of mental strength that was missing against Black Aces, stop worrying and can mobilise the sort of performance we’ve shown over the last 18 months, then I think we’ll be there or thereabouts at the finish. We need to do that,” added Baxter.

Baxter admits his side is tired after their exploits in the CAF Champions League this season, but does not want to use that as an excuse.

“It is one of those questions you don’t want to even ask. You know. I can stand here and make excuses. If you ask Pirates how their legs are feeling, they don’t want to say,” commented Baxter.
