Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has moved to thank the club's supporters for sticking with the team during what was a difficult campaign for the Soweto giants.

According to the football411 website, Amakhosi ended the 2013/14 season without a trophy after failing in their PSL and Nedbank Cup title defences, with Mamelodi Sundowns taking over as the new league kings, while Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits will do battle in the Ke Yona final.

Chiefs also stuttered in Africa after succumbing to early exits in the CAF Champions League and then CAF Confederations Cup, and Baxter feels the club's fans have been put through a lot, and deserve praise for sticking with the team.

"I would like to thank the supporters, the real supporter, the one that has travelled this arduous journey of this season with us," the Englishman told his club's official website.

Chiefs were able to sign off the season with a convincing 3-0 win over AmaZulu on Saturday, giving the fans at least something to cheer about, although Baxter was left ruing the fact the points proved inconsequential in the title race.

He said: "I am pleased with the win this afternoon. The points we collected here today would have won the league in any season but they were not enough to defend our trophy this time."
