Soweto - Speaking to Supersport's website, Kaizer Chiefs' strong defensive record has now become a mental boost, says coach Stuart Baxter.
The club have conceded only 15 goals in league action this season, one more than arch rivals Orlando Pirates who they have a seven point lead over going into this weekend’s Absa Premiership encounters.
Chiefs have managed 11 clean sheets in their 24 league games to date, an almost 50 percent return. Six clean sheets have been at home and five away.
“The 11 clean sheets are now a mental issue,” said Baxter as Chiefs prepared to depart for Durban and Saturday afternoon’s league match against Lamontville Golden Arrows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
There they have a chance to open up a 10-gap gap if they beat Arrows.
“They encourage everyone to keep going the way they are going. Goal difference can obviously make a big difference when you are getting towards the ends of the league and we are going to continue to be as difficult as we possibly can for opposing teams to break down,” Baxter added.
