Baxter: I can't grumble
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits that he is happy with their 2-0 win away to Chippa United - read full match report here - but was not completely satisfied with the performance.
According to the soccerladuma.co.za website
, Baxter feels that the Glamour Boys should have built on a bright start by killing off their opponents, but instead gifted them the chance to get into the game.
The Chilli Boys had the better of the first-half, but Chiefs responded after the break and took full advantage after Chippa's Buyani Sali was sent off.VIDEO: Chippa v Kaizer Chiefs, highlights
"We made a good opening to the game, we moved the ball quickly and we were concentrating. Then we lost the lines in our play," he said.
"Then the second-half we changed a couple of things, we went a bit direct. But all the way through the game Chippa were a threat because we gave away a lot of unusual transitions. So it gave them hope all the time.
"Once we scored (a second, we killed it off). We missed a few chances - we could have put it to bed, but we didn't, so they were living all the way through.
"The composure was not the best. Until we put the second goal in, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.
"I can't grumble though, because we came to Cape Town and beat a Chippa side that are always causing problems for everybody."
Looking ahead to the Soweto derby, he continued, "Now that we have that one out of the way, we can start reflecting and preparing for Saturday. It's a showpiece and I hope that both teams play. And I hope that the crowd behave themselves, and that we get a good referee, and we make a great advert for South African football."
