Baxter to continue rotation

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits he will need to maintain his rotation policy as the fixtures continue to come thick and fast in the season run in.

According to the website, Amakhosi have only just returned to South Africa from the Democratic Republic of Congo, where they suffered a massive blow to their CAF Champions League hopes after crashing to a 3-0 defeat against AS Vita Club on Sunday.

Next up is a less daunting but nevertheless important Nedbank Cup last-16 clash against minnows FC Buffalo on Wednesday, and Baxter knows he will need to keep his squad fresh if they are to maintain their Ke Yona title defence, as well as that of their PSL crown.

"We have just returned back from the DRC to play in a CAF Champions League game. We will continue with the rotation of the squad," the Englishman told Chiefs' official website.

"I feel we have a strong enough squad to win the game on Wednesday."

He added: "This is our home game and we will use that to go all the way in the tournament. The lads that need game time must step up and use this opportunity to raise their hands."
