According to KickOff, Baxter admits that he can’t bear watching his side sit and wait for things to happen for them and says that he expects “more courage” from his players.

“We went a goal up with probably our first and best attack, but Ajax settled on this pitch quicker than we did and they played better football in terms of possession,” said Baxter.

“The last 15 minutes of the first half we started getting better balance in our play, but we came out in the second half and we waited for the game. They had long periods of possession.”

Chiefs looked to stamp their authority and did just that with 14 minutes on the clock.

A swift move ended with Mandla Masango firing the loose ball into the back of the net after Anssi Jaakkola spilled George Lebese's initial effort.

Baxter added: “I thought this was ... I don't want to use too strong a word like cowardly, but I want more courage from the players.”

Chiefs got back to winning ways after their 19-game unbeaten run came to an end last month against SuperSport United.
