Stuart Baxter complimenting his players: Kaizer Chiefs have outdone themselves in defeat Swallows

Kaizer Chiefs have performed admirably in their previous league games as they have been collecting points and climbing the league standings.

Stuart Baxter was impressed with Kearyn Baccus, Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya, Anthony Agay, and Happy Mashiane's performances in Kaizer Chiefs' 3-1 victory against Swallows FC on Sunday.

Overall, the Glamour Boys put on a strong performance and were deserving conquerors, moving them up to second place on the standings.

Considering injuries, suspensions, and exhaustion - following three games in a week - all factors to consider, Baxter made a lot of adjustments for Sunday's matchup.

Baccus, Mashiane, and Agay all got rare debuts, while Ntiya-Ntiya came off the bench for an entertaining 25-minute cameo.

In an interview with SuperSport TV after the match, Baxter remarked, "Yes, we've got a squad, and the squad has got to make sure we share the weight."

"I believed Kearyn Baccus did a fantastic job. Anthony put forth a lot of effort, however I believe he has had better days, but he's a terrific character, so he got by.

"And Ntiya, wasn't he tiny Dynamite Jim when he first came on?" "And Happy got a few minutes, too."

Baxter praised his front three of Billiat, Dolly, and Bernard Parker, as well as the manner his team handled the game on a windy afternoon in Dobsonville.

"It was quite tough to play football in the first half." The field was marshy; it appeared to be really lovely, but it was quite swampy; the rain and wind, particularly in the first hour, were extremely bothersome," he remarked.

"However, our structure and stability were fairly strong, and then our front players delivered three moments of greatness to win the match with their mobility and liveliness."

"Then in the second half, it was all about game management."

Swallows are now 16th and last in the table after the win. Meanwhile, Amakhosi has 22 points, eight below leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Chiefs are next in battle on December 4 versus Cape Town City at the FNB Stadium, where they have won five of their last seven games.
