Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter claims fortune favoured the brave following his side's narrow 2-1 win over ailing AmaZulu in Durban on Wednesday night.

"I thought we would only get a point but we kept on playing. Fortune favours the brave," KickOff.com website quotes Baxter as saying.

"I thought the first half was poor, our defending was not good enough. We played some nice football and created some nice chances but we didn't take them.

"But I think in the second half we dominated and were braver. Our centre-backs held a tighter line and engaged their frontline players better.

George Lebese, whose goal earned Chiefs the victory and him the Man of the Match award, said belief and persistence had paid off.

"This was a team effort. It was because of my teammates and the technical staff, this goes to them," Lebese said on receiving an award for his individual display.

"It was very difficult for us, they were strong and they got the first goal. It was difficult to come back in the game. Fortunately we got the points.

"The belief was always there after conceding. We pushed until the final minute."
