Baxter men's were defeated 1-0 by Raja in their first-leg
tie, before bouncing back with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Moroka Swallows in
the Absa Premiership.
However, they were unable to build on that win as they
slumped to a 2-1 Nedbank Cup defeat at the hands of National First Division
opposition in the shape of Black Leopards at the weekend.
Baxter has warned, though, that his players will be
determined to put things right when they face Raja at Stade Mohamed V in
Casablanca on April 5.
He told the Daily Sun: "I've been in this situation
before and I can promise you one thing: Chiefs are not out of the Champions
"I was not overly impressed by Raja in Durban. But our
lack of punch upfront and the way we kept going to sleep on set pieces cost us.
"We've learnt from those mistakes and we're going to
Morocco with one thing in mind, and that is to get into the next round of this
Baxter managed to overturn one-goal deficit in the Europa
League whilst at the helm of Swedish outfit AIK during the 2012/13 campaign, as
his side clinched a 2-0 win in the return leg to progress from the play-off
And he is banking on a similar outcome in under a
fortnight's time. He added: "AIK did what was termed the impossible by
going to Moscow and winning 2-0.
"They did it and so can Chiefs. I know we'll face a
hostile crowd but we're ready for that."
