Baxter calls for Amakhosi focus
Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter expects his men to retain their
focus in their rescheduled Premiership meeting with Black Leopards at
FNB Stadium on Wednesday.
Bad weather saw the original tie abandoned 34 minutes in at the same venue this past Saturday.
Amakhosi, who will top the standings should they win in midweek, were leading 3-2.
"We would have loved to continue playing after the storm but then
it was difficult to do so as the hail could not be removed without
removing the lanes," Baxter told his club's website.
"It is difficult when a game is postponed and rescheduled, it
changes our entire program but as professionals we will have to prepare
now for Wednesday.
"Leopards were always going to be tougher and they will not be
different come Wednesday as for us we need to go out and finish the
"The players are obviously disappointed that the game was
postponed but it was due to a natural cause. I am confident that they
will show the same intent on the pitch come Wednesday."
Baxter added that he has yet to decide whether Siphiwe Tshabalala
and Eric Mathoho will feature against Lidoda Duvha. Tshabalala is
nursing a knock from international duty with Bafana Bafana, while
Mathoho attended his uncle's funeral over the weekend.
