Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp says his players' ability to adjust tactically in matches is a major reason why the Glamour Boys top the Absa Premiership standings.
Chiefs proved their flexibility in the recent 2-1 victory over Cape Town City where Lazarous Kambole was hauled off and replaced at half-time by Kearyn Baccus.
Baccus helped the Glamour Boys secure the midfield and it eventually led to a come-from-behind victory for Amakhosi.
The German told reporters: "I'm tactically flexible, that's how I've been in my 25 years of coaching.
"Here and there we wanted to do some of the things last season already, but it didn't work out, and I'm glad it is working now.
"Now we have the material to adapt to what we want to do tactically. We are working on flexibility, and to get all the players able to take different roles in the field."
Chiefs are next in action on 14 September when they take on Polokwane City at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
