Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has warned match-winner George Lebese following the dramatic win over AmaZulu.

Lebese admitted after the game that the "fans were on my case" after a slow start to the game.

The midfielder was about to be substituted before he found the equalizer for the Glamour Boys in the 60th minute. 

Baxter then kept Lebese on and withdrew Mandla Masango and the decision proved to be a masterstroke as Lebese tapped home a 94th minute winner.

Lebese was warned by Baxter after the match after seeing Lebese using the substitution sign in his goal scoring celebration. 

“He was taking stick [from the fans].

"But I don't think players should react to the fans.

"I think they should react professionally because this is their job.” said Baxter according to KickOff.com.

The win sees Chiefs up 28 points on the league table with nine wins and one draw from their first ten league games.

AmaZulu, on the other hand, are still rooted to the bottom of the table with four points from their ten games, and are still without a win.
