AmaKhosi welcome Bidvest Wits to the FNB Stadium on Wednesday for the penultimate round of fixtures, before closing out the campaign away to Chippa United on Saturday.

And while the Glamour Boys already wrapped up the top-flight title in April, Baxter is still expecting nothing less than 100% from his players as they look to close out the season on a high.

"We owe it to the league.

"We owe it to ourselves as professionals."

The coach is, however, set to tinker with the squad that beat Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 last week, adding: "We will make a few changes. But we can't stop competing and we will keep our professional attitude.

"Against Mamelodi Sundowns we showed our attitude. We were pushing hard for that win. The squad is certainly not on holiday yet."
