Stuart Baxter says that Kaizer Chiefs need a couple of wins under their belt, and that once that happens they’ll be back where they need to be.
The Amakhosi take on Ajax Cape Town this evening as they look to get back to winning ways following their recent defeat to SuperSport United, a game that saw them drop three points for the first time since last season.
Despite the defeat, Chiefs still find themselves in pole position on the Absa Premiership table, and are seven points clear of second-placed Bidvest Wits with a game in hand.
Now, as they look to tackle the Urban Warriors tonight, Baxter told the Amakhosi’s official website, “We are playing a tough opponent in Ajax. They are a talented side and Roger de Sa has done a good job with them.
“We come from a good trip to Gaborone. We are progressing well in all aspects. When we returned from the break we had five players away with the national team, which caused an imbalance in our system of planning.
"We have to consolidate our lead with a couple of wins and once that's done, we will be back to where we want to be."
Chiefs need just 21 more points between now and the end of the season to guarantee their place as champions of South Africa.
