Stuart Baxter believes Kaizer Chiefs were a better side in the second half



Stuart Baxter, Kaizer Chiefs head coach, was inspired by his accusation against winless Marumo Gallants in the second half of the season.

After playing a goalless match at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday night, the chiefs could not secure their second win.

Both sides completed the 10 men’s game with Baxter, but after a slow first half they were glad to conclude the match.

“I believe either team had to make progress in a very difficult game.

I believe that, as I indicated before the game, set-ups would be a method to win the game.

In the first half, I wasn’t pleased with our intenseness and ownership,” said Baxter afterwards to SuperSport.

“We altered it halfway through. Brought Bernard [Parker] was a little bit short in the tank on, Lebogang [Manyama].

Bernard gave us a bit more, came a bit more in the box and secured the ball around her area. We played better, I believe.

They had apparent opportunities, you said. It was a hard one.

“We performed better sometimes, I guess. Nothing was amiss in the first 20 minutes versus Royal.

We gave a stupid goal, we went back and pursued the game and lost our plot.

“I believe we made a little more progress this evening, second half.

We were a little more solid at the back save in a few plays in which Daniel helped us out like his guard did.

“I believe that we have played the way we can play when we start to win games the longer the game went on.

The sharper our possessions, the higher and braver our backlines.

We received balls in their box, we threatened when we were not threatening Royal for long durations.

We still want to win games, however. We’re not going to play 0-0.”
