Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter is relieved that the international break will allow some of his injured players time to recover ahead of their next league clash.

Matsatsantsa have suffered something of an injury crisis at the start of the 2016/17 campaign with the likes of Tefu Mashamaite, David Mathebula, Bradley Grobler, Cole Alexander and Fagrie Lakay all sidelined with various knocks.

It has adversely affected SuperSport's start to the campaign as the club have won just once in their opening five league fixtures.

Nonetheless, Baxter has is pleased with the two-week rest period for international matches as it will give his side valuable time to recover.

He told the New Age: "We welcome the break because it is going to afford us a chance to assess the injured players. Maybe by the time action resumes, they will be ready to play."
