Baxter: We are worthy winners

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was pleased with the way his side performed in the second-half of their 3-1 win away to Black Leopards on Wednesday.

According to the Soccerladuma.co.za website, Chiefs opened the scoring just four minutes in but then struggled to get their game going as Leopards equalised before the break.

The Glamour Boys returned with more purpose in the second-half though and collected all three points to hold onto top spot.

"The only thing that was more miserable than our performance in the first-half was the referee's performance," said Baxter

He went on, "The second-half we controlled the game a lot better. Our passing was better, our movement was better and our defending was calmer. At the end of the day the scoreline reflected the game.

"We were intent on self-destruction in the first-half. We were giving them so many unforced transitions. They took one of them and they did well to take it - and that put them back in the game.

"At half-time, a few honest words were said, not a lot of tactical stuff, and we went out a bit more like we usually play. I was impressed with the change of attitude.

"I know the pitch was difficult. Some of the mistakes were down to the pitch, and some of the mistakes were from frustration from the officials. But you have to carry on and we got the goals. I believe we ended as worthy winners."
