Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits Polokwane City are a dangerous attacking side, but hopes to exploit their defensive weaknesses when they lock horns on Tuesday.

Read: We don't fear Chiefs - Papic

Amakhosi make the trip to the Peter Mokaba Stadium this week looking to add to their 11-point lead at the top of the Premiership standings, but face a Rise and Shine outfit who have won their last three league outings.

And, while all too aware of the threat Kosta Papic's men can pose, Baxter is convinced his side will be able to take advantage of any frailties in their back line.

"They (Polokwane) play nicely and are very strong in their attacking play. They play more centrally and attack from the flanks," Baxter told Chiefs' official website.

"Their strength is in their attacking play. We want to see how to exploit their defence."

The Englishman went on to reiterate his plans to rotate his squad for this week's clash, with several first-choice players having struggled to keep pace during Saturday's 1-1 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns due to their respective involvements for Bafana Bafana during the recent international break.

Baxter added: "We will rotate the team a bit without changing our shape.

"The lads are unhappy with their weekend performance and will be looking at improving on Tuesday night."

Kick-off is at 19:30 on Tuesday, November 25.

Sport24 will have LIVE scoring and interactive commentary of the PSL encounter which is being played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
