Baxter Disappointed At Sloppiness

Despite making it through the Nedbank Cup last eight, Chiefs’ head coach, Stuart Baxter, has admitted that he was disappointed with some of his players.

The Amakhosi claimed a 2-1 win over FC Buffalo on Wednesday night, relying on a Mandla Masango goal to finish the job against their lower-league opposition.

Baxter named a completed different starting XI to the one that faced AS Vita in the CAF Champions League at the weekend, opting to give a number of fringe players a run out, while handing the captaincy to midfielder, Lucky Baloyi.

However, Baxter wasn’t happy with the performance from some of his players, explaining that he had hoped to see a better performance from a number of them.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, Baxter said, “I thought some of the players will raise their hands, but I was disappointed with some individual performances. They were cosmetic and sloppy which was disappointing while others did a decent job though."

He also added, “It was always going to be a challenge after travelling from Congo on the weekend. On paper they came to the game as a weak team, but like any other team that plays against us, they lifted their game. I am happy that we are in the next round of the competition."

The draw for the quarterfinals of the Nedbank will take place later this afternoon.
