According to Soccerladuma, Kaizer Chiefs lead trainer Stuart Baxter has opened up with regards to the choice to play Njabulo Ngcobo in midfield against Stellenbosch. 

The reigning PSL Defender of the Year was sent in the midfield, as Daniel Cardoso re-joined Erick Mathoho in focal protection. 

According to Soccerladuma, The Chiefs mentor uncovers Ngcobo was moved into midfield to care for Stellies aggressor Junior Mendieta, who proceeded to get the help for Ashley du Preez's goal. 

"Njabulo [Ngcobo] I figure he did approve, I'd in any case prefer to see him playing forward additional, he's becoming acclimated to that however he's settling in yet to be determined of the job, when to drop into the middle backs," Baxter told SuperSport after the game. 

"Today we made them watch out for [Junior] Mendieta in light of the fact that we realized he'd play off the speedy fellow [Ashley] Du Preez and attempt to slide him in, so we had him in that job a smidgen however I figure he did affirm.- he said to Soccerladuma.

"The two community backs began a tad shakily we didn't move as expected the manner in which we did in the second-half, we didn't do that in the principal half, so we got captured 50/50 a smidgen and that opens up spaces we don't want to open up. 

"Yet, all things considered, I don't think they had that many strikes on our objective, I think we need to check out more our ownership of the ball, our development around the crate and our dynamic.- he added to Soccerladuma.

Baxter will presently set up his side for the forthcoming Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates this end of the week. 

"We have an enormous game against Pirates coming up and you attempt to keep that out of your arranging when you play another top and significant group. However, definitely, when we don't have that, we remove the edge," he added to Soccerladuma. 

"What's more, that is the thing that I'll say, this exhibition didn't have the edge. We've had the edge that I've preferred in pretty much every game, this one we didn't have that edge, the choice wasn't right, the procedure was excessively misrepresented or we didn't make that run when we ought to do. 

"So this game didn't have the edge, it was anything but a terrible game, better believe it we lose and that is consistently a bad dream."- he concluded to Soccerladuma.
