Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says "bad habits" cost them from winning their Absa Premiership match against Platinum Stars on Sunday afternoon.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, the Amakhosi played to a goalless draw and Baxter felt his side fell off the pace in the final 20 minutes, costing them to drop two points.

“I was pleased with the first half, reasonably pleased with the beginning of the second half, but then we fell off and into bad habits,” said Baxter after the match.

 “I think we shaded it in the first half, I think we created some really good chances, we played some good football.

“Second half it was a much more open affair and I think both teams didn’t want to win the game.

“If I was the crowd I would have wanted a little bit better entertainment in the last 15/20 minutes.

“I thought we also stopped playing a little bit and weren’t true to ourselves. We started launching balls forward and that is not the way we play and I was not happy with that.”

Chiefs are still six points clear at the top of the table and looking at the run-in to the season end, Baxter says there are no easy games.

“All difficult games, let’s have a look at the way Chippa are playing, look at how Leopards are playing, all teams be it in the middle of the table or at the bottom, they are all fighting for the points,” added Baxter.

Chiefs’ last three games see them take on Ajax Cape Town, SuperSport United and the University of Pretoria.
