Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter has identified a key area in new goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse's arsenal that needs improvement.

Although Baxter has been impressed with the professionalism of Pieterse, he feels that his footwork needs fine tuning.

Pieterse left Kaizer Chiefs in the off-season to join Matsatsantsa where he competes with first-choice stopper Ronwen Williams.

The 24 year-old had similar challenges at Kaizer Chiefs where the number one jersey is owned by Itumeleng Khune.

"Reyaad's got a fantastic attitude and Reyaad works hard. The other day I was taking to him about how he can work on his foot work and he asked those questions why and he knows he's got a few things to work on," Khune told Kick Off.

"If he can work on those things and of course he's competitive and that's great and he's pushing Ronwen and Ronwen owns the only shirt and he's always learning."
