Cape Town - George Lebese has heaped praise on the management of Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter after they dismantled Moroka Swallows 3-0 at Dobsonville Stadium.

As it happened: Swallows vs Chiefs

According to KickOff, Lebese admits that they have been feeling under pressured but says Baxter has kept on motivating them along the way.

“The coach has been motivating us and saying there's no pressure on the field,” said Lebese.

“We are not fighting for our lives, we're doing what we enjoy, we're paid to stay healthy, so there's no pressure. We're just enjoying ourselves.

"We've just shied away from what the supporters have been saying – we've been under pressure though – but you know, there are strong characters in the team, the senior players, and there is motivation all the time."

Lebese provide a brilliant lob over Etafia to effectively kill off the game and seal the points for Baxter’s side. Two minutes later Parker made it 3-0, firing home a powerful shot to rack up a deserved goal.
