Baccus on Orlando home without fans

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Kearyn Baccus admits the Orlando Stadium draw suits them but concedes the absence of the Amakhosi faithful will be an adjustment.

Chiefs will resume the title push in the 2019/20 Absa Premiership season in their fierce rivals home ground for the remainder of the campaign in the Gauteng bio-bubble.

With no fans allowed to attend fixtures amidst the national lockdown during the coronavirus crisis, Baccus who's enjoyed a solid debut season with Chiefs has acknowledged that it will be different as the most supported club in South Africa.

"We will obviously miss our fans," he said. "But it's a nice stadium and the pitch is very good. I am happy with the outcome of the draw to play at Orlando Stadium.

"Now it’s important that we all focus, be mentally strong and play as a team in those eight remaining fixtures."

Amakhosi will resume the campaign against Bidvest Wits on Wednesday 12 August with a four-point lead over Mamelodi Sundowns albeit having played one game more than their domestic rivals.
