Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits his side were not at their best against Maritzburg United on Saturday, but was happy to have come away with the win in the end.

Bernard Parker scored the only goal of this weekend's Telkom Knockout opener against the Team of Choice as Amakhosi maintained their 100 percent start to the new season.

The result was a carbon copy of the two teams' Premiership encounter last weekend; although Baxter felt the Glamour Boys could have been more clinical.

"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," he told Chiefs' official website.

"I am not happy with the way we progressed during the game as we started to be on the back foot.”

“All in all it was a typical, but a good cup tie.”

"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."
