Durban - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter felt his side were rewarded for their second-half ambition following the dramatic late win over AmaZulu in their Premiership encounter in Durban on Wednesday.

George Lebese, who bagged a brace, scored his second goal deep into stoppage time to help the league leaders snatch a 2-1 win over the basement club at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The result enabled Amakhosi to stretch their lead to 11 points at the summit.
"We played some nice pretty football in the first half, but we weren't efficient and we weren't effective," Baxter said afterwards.
"That left the game wide open, so you could go end to end.
"It's probably the game they wanted and not the one we wanted. We came out after the break and we got hold of the game by the scruff of the neck."
Baxter felt it was results like these which could prove critical come the end of the campaign.
"At the end of the season the points that you have had to grind out are the ones that make the difference," he said.
"The ones you get with a 4-0 win are almost free of charge, so it's an important win.
"When top meets bottom, wherever it may be in the world, it's never as easy as it looks."
