Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter
says his team have lost shape and momentum, which has resulted in them struggling so far in this year's Premier Soccer League.
The 60-year-old mentor expressed his disappointment after the defending champions lost 3-1 to log-leaders SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe stadium in Pretoria on Saturday.
Goals from Bennett Chenene
, Innocent Mkhabela and Bradley Grobler were sufficient for Matsatsantsa while Bernard Parker
was on target for the Amakhosi.
“We completely switched off and allowed SuperSport into the game we lost shape and momentum. I’m not happy with what happened here, I’m deeply disturbed by what happened. We had a good first half, but a shocking second,” Baxter said, according to the Daily Sun
Baxter also said that they need to re-think their tactics before moving on and recruiting new players to Naturena.
“We have to work a lot harder, but there is no quick fix. But do we deal with what happened here by going into the transfer market? I’m not too sure about that.”
“We didn’t want to go out and buy too many players but we have monitored the market. Our squad did well last season and we still believe in them, but we will continue to keep one eye on the market."
Victory for the Pretoria outfit sent them to the log summit
, still maintaining their 100% record from the three games played while the reigning champions are currently outside the top half, occupying the ninth spot.
Chiefs' next game will be at home against Maritzburg United on Saturday, September 14.
