Baxter happy with Chiefs win
Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, has stated that although he is satisfied with his side’s 1-0 victory over Maritzburg United during this past weekend’s Telkom Knockout match at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, he was less impressed with their performance.
Both teams approached the game differently, comparing to the ABSA Premiership match last week, with both being in attack mode.
United showed more confidence in the opening minutes of the game, which helped them keep the ball for longer periods of time.
However, forward Bernard Parker, scored the only goal of the game, maintaining the Amakhosi’s winning streak of 12 out of 12 games.
Baxter has said that he wished Chiefs had been more technical and had taken more risks.
"I thought we played well in the beginning of the game. We moved the ball very well and our movement was good too if you compare to the last game we played here," Baxter said on the Chiefs' official website.
"I am not happy with the way we progressed during the game as we started to be on the back foot.”
"We started to create decent chances later in the game. But we allowed them to start to attack and they could have caught us with one long shot. It was a tough cup tie."
