Baxter: We'll go from good to great

Premiership

Chiefs supporters are still scratching their heads as to how the club failed to land any silverware last season despite appearing to be running away with the League halfway through proceedings.

"The 2013/14 season was not bad at all. It was emotionally depressing but when you look at it tactically we had a good season. The margins in the games that we lost were very close," Baxter tells the club's website.

"There was a 10 percent margin between us and glory last season. We have to step up and move from good to great in the next season."

Part of moving from good to great will be new signings, but the coach has warned against the expectation that Chiefs must bring in big names.

"Strengthening the team doesn't always mean buying big. Some of the players may leave on transfer as well and that will open opportunities to bring some quality into the team but that will also be determined by the negotiations," says Baxter.

"We need strengthening in the attacking force where we missed so many chances this season. We didn't contribute enough goals compared to the chances we created."

The Chiefs coach admits there will also be a few players moving out of Naturena before the start of next season as he looks to fine-tune his squad.

"There will be player movements where we think some players will be better served by moving to other teams. There will also be an opportunity created to promote some of the players from the development," he adds.
