PSL

Baxter throws in the towel

Johannesburg - Stuart Baxter has accepted that Kaizer Chiefs will, in all likeliness, finish the season empty handed, but believes success is not limited to just silverware.

According to the soccerladuma website, Amakhosi's PSL title defence looks all but over this term after slipping four points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with just two games remaining, while they also surrendered their Nedbank Cup crown last weekend after crashing out at the semi-finals.

Baxter admits both of those shortcomings have proved bitter pills to swallow, but the tactician is still able to take positives from the campaign.

"It's a disappointing season. We wanted silverware and we didn't get it and no one can turn that around," said the Englishman.

"But if you quantify success as playing good football, doing the right thing, pitching up and trying always to win the games and you think about the run that we've had despite our schedule, then I would say the supporters are happy.

"Are they (the fans) disappointed because we don't win anything? Yes, and so are we. It all just depends on how you quantify success."

Baxter, who is looking to at least end the season on a high, starting with Tuesday's trip to University of Pretoria and again on Saturday when they sign off the campaign at home against AmaZulu, added: "We've got to get six points in our last two. It will be difficult, won't it?

"We know we are a bit tired from the Nedbank Cup, but we've got to go there for the integrity of the club and the league."
