Baxter very pleased with Chiefs win

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter had no complaints after his side's 4-0 drubbing of Chippa United on Saturday evening.

Chiefs ran rampant at FNB Stadium to resume action after the international break in ideal fashion at FNB Stadium.

Despite having found of the back net four times, Baxter feels his side could have scored more.

"I thought the lads played well tonight," Baxter told SuperSport TV.

"It was probably a closer game than 4-0. We decided in the second half we would play deeper. We invited a few crosses. When you take your chances and don't miss chances and when you prevent your opponent instead of giving the opponent those moments I was speaking out before the game.

"This is what can happen. If there's a mental shift, then there's a momentum shift. And then Keagan Dolly believes he's going to score a goal. He said he's been snatching at it. I'm very pleased with the way they played.

"We work all the summer on our attacking play and the movement around the box. I think our movement around the box was especially good tonight. It was probably what Chippa had most problems with. The mobility, the speed the lads were moving at. And if we'd done it more there were probably and I don't want to be bad mannered but there were probably a few more goals for us in that respect on transition."

Keagan Dolly scored twice while Khama Billiat and Lazarous Kambole also got on the scoresheet and the Amakhosi mentor believes it is a much-needed confidence booster for the trio.

"For them to get on the scoresheet, it's great for their confidence. Confidence breeds confidence. We said we should concentrate on our performances. We shouldn't concentrate on everything that is said or speculated. And that's what the boys did and they did it very well and I'm very pleased in that respect," he concluded.
