The Amakhosi endured a trophyless campaign in 2011/12 and, to add insult to injury, had to look on as their archrivals won the second successive treble.
But with a host of new players, as well as a new coach in Baxter, there is an air of optimism that Chiefs will rise once more and be serious contenders in all competitions.
And Nkosi admits getting the players in the right frame of mind will be key to this happening.
“Since we have started with pre-season he [Baxter] has been telling the players that they are good enough to win again and that we are better than the other teams. He is working so hard in trying to psyche us up before the season starts,” the former Bloemfontein Celtic man is quoted in The Sowetan.
“He has got the right mentality to achieve at the club – and that is what he wants the players to adopt.”
Chiefs have made some good moves in the transfer market, bringing in the likes of Erick Mathoho, Siboniso Gaxa, Kingston Nkhatha, Morgan Gould, Kgotso Moleko and Nkosi.
