Baxter to rotate Glamour Boys

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has confirmed he will tinker with his squad, albeit marginally, for Saturday's CAF Champions League clash against Township Rollers.

Amakhosi will get their continental campaign up and running in the preliminary rounds this weekend when they travel to Botswana on the back of their goalless Premiership draw against Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday.

And, Baxter admits he will look to give some of his fringe players a chance to impress, while new signing David Zulu, who made his debut as a second-half substitute against Phunya Sele Sele, is expected to play from the start this weekend.

"I've not done any homework on Rollers yet, to be honest," the coach told The Sowetan.

"I didn't want to distract from this [game against Celtic] - it was an important one to get out of the blocks again with, and not lose it. I think we're not going to weaken the team too much.

"We'll make a few changes. I threw David Zulu on against Celtic because I thought it was a 10-minute cameo where he doesn't have to worry too much about the shape of the team. That is the sort of rotation I think we'll be doing."
