Baxter: Amakhosi 'panicked'

2012-11-26 11:41

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits his side were lacking composure following their 2-0 defeat to Platinum Stars on Saturday afternoon.

According to website, Amakhosi tasted defeat for the first time in the PSL this season as goals from Henrico Botes and Mogakolodi Ngele handed Dikwena the three points, which left the side fourth in the standings and five points behind leaders Chiefs.

Speaking after the game Baxter was critical of his side's approach to the game, saying: "We shouldn't play crosses from 45 or 50 metres. We need to work the space behind the opposition's back-line.

"I thought we panicked a bit. And the Stars players defended their box well, and bravely, and got bodies in front of the ball."

He added: "We knew when we came up here (the Royal Bafokeng Stadium) that it would be a difficult game so we can't say at any stage that we didn't know what we were facing. But still I felt that the first 45 minutes were very poor."

    I realy dont why this Svasiya guy is still at Chiefs and for Baxter even to field him. He is just an embarassment to the team as he cant even play the basics of football. I dont mind losing but seeing such a cow in the starting lineup i knew we were going to loose.

    I also think Tshabalala is not doing well infact die man is moeg. Please coach I think you must try players like Lucky Baloyi and Masango. I like what Gordon did at Bafana Bafana level not fielding Tsemonate on their lat game.
