Sturt BAxter man is out Lecture Students in Mbombela Stadium

Chiefs is out going to Mbembela with confidence after beating colour Black Leopard 2-1 at Soccer City curtesity of Siphiwe Tshabalala and on form Bernard Parker. Even though their coach Stuart Baxter was not happy with the 2-1 win but was happy to get three points

“I am pleased with the three points. I thought we did well in patches and if you would combine those patches I think in the 90 minutes we would have done well.

 “We seem to put our foot off the paddle late in the first half allowing Black Leopards who looked more of a threat than the last time to attack us. We spoke to the team at half time and we seem to play better and until we scored the second goal. It was after that that we became sloppy.

“I would have been happy with the 2-0 score. I think our goalkeeper, Itu (Itumeleng Khune) did superbly well today. He did not make outstanding saves but had to deal with lot of high balls and crosses and was very solid. I think he deserved to keep a clean sheet this evening.

Baxter also explained the reasons for keeping Mashamaite in the game after suffering an injury on his head; “He is a warrior and went to him as he was getting treatment outside; he said to me; “Coach please do not take me off,”. All he wanted was to fight for the team and I think he only made one mistake when he held on the ball for long otherwise other than that I was pleased with the performance of the team.

Top of the table, Glamour Boys are the first team to reach double figures in the Absa Premiership with 10 points after four games. Chiefs have won two games at home; one win away and one draw away and have scored a total of 10 goals.
