Pretoria - After working together at Kaizer Chiefs, SuperSport United head coach Stuart Baxter is relishing his reunion with Kingston Nkatha.

The British born mentor hinted however, that there would be no special treatment for the Zimbabwean, despite their good working relationship.

Baxter joined Matsatsantsa following the departure of Gordon Igesund last month and Nkatha's confidence has been rejuvenated due to his mentor's presence.

Baxter, however, said that he always pushes the former Chiefs goal poacher to fight for his place and Nkatha always react positively to his instructions.

"Some players feel more comfortable playing under certain coaches" Baxter insisted.

"They feel his confidence in them especially when he's around and that pushes them on.

"I always tell him that I'm not his uncle, I challenge him all the time so that he must work hard like the rest of the players.

"I always tell him that I won't be a nice guy all the time but he has always reacted so well to me over the years.

"And I think he's very pleased to work with me again," concluded Baxter.
