Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter believes that his side showed a lot of character by securing a victory over Golden Arrows.

United put on an impressive second-half performance that saw the Pretoria outfit claim a 5-2 victory.

According to the SowetanLIVE, Baxter says that following Wits’ 5-0 triumph over Ajax Cape Town they needed to net more goals than the usual to keep up with their title rivals. the coach said.

“We spoke about having to respond because Wits have had some good results and we needed to," Baxter said.

“We were playing a very good team - Arrows are one of the better teams. They can beat anybody on their day.

“What’s happened to the PSL? It’s like there are explosions everywhere but the first-half was very mediocre.

“We compressed the game a lot more in the second-half because we knew they were going to get more transitions.

“Apart from the two goals we conceded‚ I thought we were very good in the second-half but we did switch off a bit. I’ll take 5-2 any day of the week.”
