“Everybody’s happy and you can have a drink at the weekend” – Chiefs coach


Kaizer Chiefs survived another defeat in the last minutes of added time by the referee against AmaZulu FC on Saturday afternoon. Thanks to the late penalty that was netted by Keagan Dolly to save the three points and make sure that the game ends on a 1-1 draw at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium in Durban. Usuthu thought they had the DStv Premiership encounter by the scruff of the neck as Luvuyo Memela scored in the 48th minute. However, Chiefs had other plans as they found their equalizer in the 90+4 minutes, which happened to be a controversial penalty that Dolly scored. 

The whole game has been summed up to the late penalty, that many fans are divided about, as some felt that the referee did Usuthu wrong by giving Chiefs a penalty that wasn’t there at all. Meanwhile, other fans have stated that the linesman was much closer to the action and he saw that it was a penalty. With all the back and forth opinions from the public about the penalty, it seems like the Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter didn’t want to dwell on the penalty. All he stated was that he’s proud of how Chiefs players were able to fight until the last seconds of the game. Also, a point away from home will always be welcomed at Naturena. “We refused to get beat. I think as I say the ten percent if we can improve the critical phases that decide games of football. You know we played the good football to get someone in; you’ve got to bury that… We can’t open on the second half like I said critical phase, don’t open up too much and we open ourselves massively, make a mistake and they score. We can’t do that,” said Baxter talking to SuperSport TV after the match. 

Furthermore, the Englishman stated that Amakhosi still need to work on making good moments last longer on the pitch. As in attack their opponents with everything they’ve got and then be clinical in front of goals. They don’t want to get any lucky wins at Naturena, everything has to be earned. If the Chiefs are performing well, then their fans will start enjoying their weekends and have a few drinks to celebrate victories. “We need to try to make something last a long time, not just get a lucky win, and then everybody’s happy and you can have a drink at the weekend,” said Baxter talking to SuperSport TV.
