Baxter delighted with result

2012-08-13 10:16

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has hailed his side's "fantastic result" following their 6-0 defeat of AmaZulu at the weekend.

The Glamour Boys began the new season with a flawless display against Usuthu, with Bernard Parker's four-goal haul stealing the show, while Kingston Nkhatha and Siyabonga Nkosi completed the rout.

The result came on the back of Chiefs' heavy 4-1 defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 quarter-finals last weekend, but the turn-around in performance has left Baxter with little complaint.

"There's two different aspects about Saturday night; you have the performance and you have the result," he said after the game. "The result I cannot complain about at all.

"It's a fantastic result away from home against a well-drilled team that knows how to keep the ball very well. Looking at the performance, the players were very nervous early on, I don't know why.

"But thereafter we unbalanced a very good team. After the first goal, I can't complain about the performance at all, I thought we were disciplined and the attacking play was very good."

Speaking of Parker's sensational performance, Baxter added: "I think he's got all of the qualities that a modern shadow striker should possess.

"I'm very happy with the way he's playing, he approaches his job every day in a very professional way and would imagine that (Bafana Bafana coach) Gordon (Igesund) is very pleased to see what Bernard's doing at the moment."

    Season is still at it's infancy (just being born actually). I can't forgive you for the loss of a chance to clinch a silverware.

      very true tshepo. the humiliation we suffered as supporters against sundowns is, up to ta-date still unbearing.
