Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter has backed his side for further improvement after they booked their passage to the Telkom Knockout final against Cape Town City.

The former Kaizer Chiefs mentor will look to clinch his maiden Telkom Knockout trophy after steering SuperSport to victory against Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

Thabo Mnyamane netted the only goal of the game to take them to a 1-0 victory against the Buccaneers over the weekend.

"It’s good, but it could have been great," Baxter told IOL.

"We can play better in certain periods of certain games. I am not 100 percent pleased, but pleased that we dug out a result and got to the final. 

"We’ve done a lot of things in the time we have been together, but we still need to keep going," he added.

SuperSport extended their undefeated run in all competitions to 12 matches and Baxter is adamant that his team can achieve more. 

"You can hear Dean (Furman) say we are not finished yet, and he is right. I will concentrate on that and hopefully it will give me what I want as well," he added.

The 63-year-old also spoke about the great work that Eric Tinkler has done at the Mother City based-outfit, suggesting that they can compete with any team in the country, despite being newly-formed.

"I think Eric (Tinkler) has done a very good job there and taken the remnants of Black Aces (whose franchise was sold and renamed Cape Town City) and added a little bit of spice to it. 

"They’ve only just started, but right now are playing as good as any team in the country," he concluded.
