Chiefs need to take chances - Baxter


Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, has said that his team’s scoring tactics have been an issue, adding that they should be taking chances in order to win matches.

“What worries me, and I said this to the players, is that if we are a top team then we shouldn’t be missing so many chances and presenting a few to the opponents because you can end up losing a lot of games 1-0,” said Baxter.

“The players deserve a pat on the back for their attacking play – to create those chances. But a Picasso painting without a signature of Picasso is worth the same as the one I painted! It is worth nothing, so that’s what our beautiful attacks are worth if you don’t put the ball in the back of the net.”

Amakhosi will be facing Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday in an Absa Premiership Soccer League (PSL) clash. Wits have a strong attack team and have been voted second-best in terms of goals scored, with 16 points from 12 matches.

Baxter is hoping that his team will make an effort and not be scared in front of the goal box.

Kaizer Chiefs are currently sitting on top of the PSL log with 30 points and Wits are sitting in third position with 20 points.
