Stuart Baxter, manager of Kaizer Chiefs, feels he witnessed plenty from his players in the DStv Premiership stalemate versus AmaZulu to offer him and Amakhosi followers hope for the remainder of the season. Chiefs required the very last spot-kick from Keagan Dolly to rescue a draw against Usuthu, although they were dominating for most of the game, with AmaZulu goalkeeper Veli Mothwa in brilliant form.
"I wish our fans remain with us and comprehend the path we're on." "I feel there is plenty of going on to create the impression this might be really excellent if we can just move that 10 percent," Baxter remarked following the AmaZulu encounter and before this week's international break.
The Chiefs' coach praised his player's overall effectiveness versus AmaZulu, but he criticized their lapse in concentration at critical periods and their Biggest weakness in this campaign of failing to finish the wide range of opportunities they are generating.
"We performed pretty well after the first stanza, in my opinion." We gave to everything they had by making too many mistakes. They didn't have many opportunities, but we had four, and their goalkeeper made enormous blocks," recalls Baxter.
The Chiefs coach is hoping that his player's higher efficiency, as well as their passion and determination, will continue over into their next contest, and has challenged them to step up their confidence even more.
"We moved back to a 4-3-3 and utilized Njabulo Ngcobo in a different capacity," Baxter says. "At moments, he has shown that he had abilities in that capacity, and he allowed Cole Alexander and Phathutshedzo Nange to advance in the area." We did get more players in the area, as we discussed, and when crosses came in, we were on the receiving end of them."
He also praised Njabulo Blom, who he described as "performing extremely well and is the greatest defender in the nation at present," as well as Reeve Frosler's "huge horsepower," which allowed Amakhosi to be more adventurous moving in attack, supported by Ngcobo's steadiness as protection.
"We had to take a chance, and the lads did a good job." The longer time passed, the more offensive attackers we sent onto the pitch. We had a big offensive force on the field. "We generated opportunities, and one of them culminated in the spot-kick, which, although being late, is extremely nice," Baxter adds.
The "basic school error" that resulted in AmaZulu's goal is the component of their approach that he believes has to be improved. He is now urging his teams to continue up the momentum and feels that with little tweaks, Amakhosi will be able to get back on the right track.
"We simply need to tweak a few things which can be a win against a club who came second last season," Baxter adds. With the Chiefs not playing until mid-October, Baxter will be able to rest a little before the work ethic resumes.
"As usual, when you have spare time, you want to enjoy it with your relatives." I'll certainly pay a visit to one of my children and leave the elderly man in their hands. After that, it's back to work, and we'll be working incredibly hard," Baxter says.
