Baxter pin-points Chiefs' match-winning moment

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has pin-pointed a match-winning moment in his side's triumph over Orlando Pirates during the weekend's Soweto Derby.

Kaizer Chiefs completed the double over bitter rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday when the Amakhosi ran out 2-1 winners over the Buccaneers at the Orlando Stadium.

Reeve Frosler and Eric Mathoho scored either side of a goal from Pirates' Kwame Peprah but it was a late save from goalkeeper Brandon Petersen to deny Terrence Dzvukamanja that ultimately ensured that the Amakhosi went home with all three points.

"Petersen was outstanding, he’s been outstanding since he came into the team," Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter said post-match.

"The one save right at the death there gave us the win, didn't it? It’s a one on one, they're clean through, and he makes a save. It's a game-changing save.

"That's what he's there for, that's what he trains to do. He deserves a massive pat on the back. He’s really thrown his hat in the ring and says I want to stay around."

Having served as the understudy to Daniel Akpeyi during most of the first half of the season, Petersen appears to have established himself as the club's new No. 1 after starting in each of the last four matches across all competitions.
