Lebese scored a goal in Wednesday's PSL clash with Platinum Stars, which Amakhosi won 2-0.

Shortly after the half-hour mark, left-footed Lebese netted Chiefs' second goal with his right foot, slicing the ball in from a tight angle.

“The coach always teases me at training and says the right foot is also mine and I need to start using it more and today fortunately I got the goal,” Lebese said.

“It was a good game, we managed to get three points but it was difficult playing them for a third time,” said Lebese after already facing Platinum Stars on two occasions this season.

Baxter will be a happy coach after his training ground banter added a new dimension to Lebese's game.
