Speaking to the clubs official website, Baxter admits that
the intensity and pressure is everywhere and every team is feeling it.
“Pressure is everywhere, no matter where you are on the
log,” says Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter ahead of the Absa Premiership
resuming this week.
“The key to success will be in our mental readiness.”
Baxter was speaking at a PSL Press Conference organised to
generate excitement ahead of the second half of the season.
“Whether we lead with five, ten or fifteen points,”
continues the Amakhosi coach, “it doesn’t matter much, what matters are the
performances on the field of play.”
Amakhosi top the PSL standings with 46
points from 18 matches while defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns are in second position with 31
points from 17 outings.
“This time we will approach things differently in terms of
how we prepare and recuperate,” Baxter points out, referring to last season
when the Brazilians eventually overtook the Amakhosi to take the league title.
“Things change when you include long distance travelling in
“However, we won’t feel sorry for ourselves, we have to be
ready. Hopefully the squad will remain fresh and healthy.
“At times it is tougher to be successful than not being
successful. We will apply the mental preparation to the last degree.
“The league will be interesting to follow.
“The fans will check how all the teams get out of the blocks
at the restart. For us, Celtic will be tough - as always. Buoyant by their
passionate home supporter’s base, this promises to be an entertaining game to
watch,” concludes Baxter.
Chiefs restart their league fixtures with a trip to
Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday night.
Kick-off is at 19:30, at the Free State Stadium.
