Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits his side were lacking composure following their 2-0 defeat to Platinum Stars on Saturday afternoon.

According to football411.com website, Amakhosi tasted defeat for the first time in the PSL this season as goals from Henrico Botes and Mogakolodi Ngele handed Dikwena the three points, which left the side fourth in the standings and five points behind leaders Chiefs.

Speaking after the game Baxter was critical of his side's approach to the game, saying: "We shouldn't play crosses from 45 or 50 metres. We need to work the space behind the opposition's back-line.

"I thought we panicked a bit. And the Stars players defended their box well, and bravely, and got bodies in front of the ball."

He added: "We knew when we came up here (the Royal Bafokeng Stadium) that it would be a difficult game so we can't say at any stage that we didn't know what we were facing. But still I felt that the first 45 minutes were very poor."
