Baxter: Chiefs were too 'tame'

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter was left ruing his side's profligacy in front of goal after they saw their 100 percent start to the season ended against Moroka Swallows on Wednesday.

Heading into this week's clash at the FNB Stadium, Amakhosi had won all eight of their Premiership encounters - and 15 in all competitions this term - but needed Reneilwe Letsholonyane to cancel out Lucky Baloyi's 28th-minute opener as the match ended 1-1.

However, the Glamour Boys had wasted numerous chances to bulge the back of the net, coming as plenty of frustration to Baxter.

“I think our first half was tame,” he said after the match. “We didn’t pass the ball well enough, but as soon as they scored we started to play really well for the rest of the game, but we didn’t take our chances.”

The coach continued: “I can’t complain about the effort of the players after Swallows scored, but before it was tame. It took us until they scored for us to start dominating the game. 

“I think we should have won, but Swallows’ brave effort gave them a point. I’m never happy when I don’t win, especially at home.”
