Johannesburg - A potential banana skin lies in wait for Kaizer Chiefs when they take on Platinum Stars in their Telkom Knockout competition semi-final over the weekend, and coach Stuart Baxter has warned his troops about the dangers that Stars pose.

The Rustenburg team lost their coach Cavin Johnson to fellow Premiership outfit SuperSport United before the start of the new season.

"They’ve crept under the radar a little bit, so their players play a little bit more relaxed.

"That’s good for their confidence and they take advantage of it and the fact that they’re a well-organised team.

"One of the keys is possession of the ball against Platinum Stars.

"If you allow them good possession of the ball, they grow in confidence and they move the ball around quite well.

"It’s difficult because we got Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Tefu Mashamaite back the other day, and this morning we get Siphiwe Tshabalala, Bernard Parker, and Itumeleng Khune back," he said.
