Cape Town – Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter is disappointed his side could capitalise on good periods in their game against Maritzburg United.

It was Khumbulani Banda goal which separated Chiefs and The Team of Choice with nine minutes left to spare before the referee blows his whistle for full-time.

According to KickOff, Baxter felt that his side had opportunities to opening the scoring and create a comfortable setting for the rest of the encounter.

“In the first 25 minutes I thought we played the best football we've played this year. After that I was disappointed... I am disappointed that we didn't turn our superiority into a goal,” said Baxter.

“Then what happens is they get back into the game with a couple of transitions and they get buoyant and we get on the back foot. I thought in the second half we could change, but we didn't. We also conceded from a set-piece, which is very unlike us.

“What's most disappointing is when we have a good period and we don't turn that into a goal. That's football, we just have to keep our composure and make sure we keep trying to score goals.”
