After 13 game win streak (eight Absa Premiership games, four MTN8 matches and one Telkom Knockout encounter), Amakhosi were brought back down to earth after Swallows made seven changes to their side that lost to Mpumalanga Black Aces in order to earn a well deserved point with the departure of Zeca Marques hanging on their shoulders.
Speaking to club's website, Baxter reveals that all is not lost after dropping points for the first time.
“We didn’t deserve to win,” said Baxter.
“We didn’t put enough pressure on the opponent. And that was disappointing, because the start of a match is always crucial. That’s when you want to get on the front foot.”
“I would have loved to have won this game, but I still find enough positive aspects to be happy with, despite losing two points.”
Baxter clarified that their intentions were clear at the start of the season and did not expect to break records.
“We just wanted to create an identity in the way we played.”
“What we wanted to incorporate was that ‘child’ in the African player, the on-the-ball creativity.”
“Of course, within a certain structured scheme. Our winning run has now come to an end, but I am not worried about that,” concludes Baxter.
