Baxter: Good teams react

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter expects an instant response from his side after their early-season title hopes took a dent following their MTN8 semi-final first leg loss on Saturday.

According to the Football411 website, a Daine Klate free-kick was enough to hand Orlando Pirates a 1-0 advantage against Amakhosi this weekend, with the Buccaneers taking a priceless away goal into the return fixture next month.

The Glamour Boys will now need to put that defeat behind them as they prepare to take on Moroka Swallows in the PSL on Tuesday, with Chiefs looking to follow on from their opening day win over Mpumalanga Black Aces.

"Good teams react and I hope we react in the coming game," Baxter said.

"We didn't come out of the blocks very well. We've not tasted defeat for a while so it's a bitter pill to swallow."

The Englishman added: "I didn't think we would be so passive, or so slow, to shift our lines.

"That's something the players will have to look at and make sure they don't do too often."
