Cape Town - Stuart Baxter admits that besides the defeat he is pleased with the way his Kaizer Chiefs side played against SuperSport United.

Speaking to the clubs official website, Baxter reveals that he thought the players showed good attitude against United.

“I am happy with the way the players are developing,” insists Baxter, despite Tuesday evening’s 2-0 loss away against Gordon Igesund’s charges.

“I thought we played well. The players showed good attitude.

“We missed the services of two of our senior players who had to be withdrawn before the game,” Baxter laments the late withdrawals of Tsepo Masilela (got injured during the warming-up) and Reneilwe Letsholonyane (his father passed away on Monday night).

“But what I can’t believe is how SuperSport scored their first goal. The ball travelled a long distance before it was headed in between our tall defenders and a tall goalkeeper, in the 16 area.”

Jeremy Brockie was the player who got the last touch and assured that United get the lead early in the second-half.

In the dying minutes for the game, Dove Wome struck home from a low Thuso Phala cross to end Chiefs’ 19 game unbeaten run.

Chiefs’ next assignment is the Nedbank Cup against Edu Sports at FNB Stadium on Saturday, February 21.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
