Speaking to the clubs official website, Baxter reveals that
he thought the players showed good attitude against United.
“I am happy with the way the players are developing,” insists
Baxter, despite Tuesday evening’s 2-0 loss away against Gordon Igesund’s
“I thought we played well. The players showed good attitude.
“We missed the services of two of our senior players who had
to be withdrawn before the game,” Baxter laments the late withdrawals of Tsepo
Masilela (got injured during the warming-up) and Reneilwe Letsholonyane (his
father passed away on Monday night).
“But what I can’t believe is how SuperSport scored their
first goal. The ball travelled a long distance before it was headed in between
our tall defenders and a tall goalkeeper, in the 16 area.”
Jeremy Brockie was the player who got the last touch and
assured that United get the lead early in the second-half.
In the dying minutes for the game, Dove Wome struck home
from a low Thuso Phala cross to end Chiefs’ 19 game unbeaten run.
Chiefs’ next assignment is the Nedbank Cup against Edu
Sports at FNB Stadium on Saturday, February 21.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
