‘Let’s not get carried away’ – Baxter on Chiefs new form

Having secured back-to-back wins in the league, Kaizer Chiefs are full of confidence following an uneven start to the new season.

On Sunday, Amakhosi got the better of SuperSport United in their kraal winning 2-1 in the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

However, their coach Stuart Baxter doesn’t want to be too happy courtesy of results while the performance is still unpleasant.

The Scottish coach wasn’t impressed about the way The Phefeni Boys played in the first half.

“It was a lot more tough for me in the first half,” Baxter told SuperSport TV.

“I thought we were disjointed. We misunderstood the game plan. We had a chat at half-time and I think the second half was much better tactically. We looked a lot more dangerous even when we were playing with a low block.

“I thought the players in the second half gave a good performance.

“It’s quicker to mention the fit players than the injured players. The closest to coming back are Dube and Leo Castro. They back at full training but they’ve got to get themselves match fit so we’re waiting for them.

“We don’t know how bad Bernard’s is. It’s a bit of a hamstring. Khama’s shouldn’t be too bad because we took him off as a precaution to get some fresh legs on.

“I think the lads put their bodies on the line so they may get injured.

“Look, let’s not get carried away. First half showed we have a long way to go before we are the real McCoy. We’re very good at times when we do the job properly. We switch off at too many times and lose our confidence and our belief. We’ve got to get rid of that. We are slowly getting rid of it and the results are showing.”

The next league for The Glamour Boys will be against Stellenbosch on the 2nd of November.
