Baxter Expects Tricky Game Against SuperSport

Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has explained how he wants his players to approach SuperSport United.

Baxter and his men visit his former team for the DStv Premiership clash on Sunday, and the Englishman says he expects a tricky match against Kaitano Tembo’s troops.

Baxter also explained that many things, including he himself, have changed since he left the club a few years ago.

“The players will be revved up. I know Kaitano Tembo, Kaitano knows me. And I am sure we’ll both be trying to pull a couple of tricks to try to blindside the other,” Baxter told club’s media department.

“The SuperSport players have worked under me, most of them. If I had stood still as a coach, they would know exactly what we’re going to do.

“But that is not the case. I’ve moved forward, they’ve moved forward. They will be doing things that I don’t expect, and we will be doing things that they don’t expect.

“So, the basis is there for a very interesting game. We will do everything we can to get the three points and at the moment the lads are believing, and it’s a good atmosphere. We’re going for it.”

The 68-year-old mentor had also said that the 4-0 win over Chippa United last week, could help them to come out from Lucas Moripe with a positive result.

“The way to deal with it is you live in the now. The truth is we weren’t when we were disappointed as bad as people say we were. And we’re not as good as people say we are in the euphoria,” he said.

“We’ve got to remain independent of that pat on the back. We’ve got to know the job that we’re doing. We know have a really difficult game in SuperSport, who are having a great season.

“They’re very stable, they’ve not made major changes. They’ve just topped the squad up, so they’ve been together for a while. This is going to be a really difficult game.

“All I know is that after coming off a 4-0 it’s much easier to approach the game in the right way than it is if we’re coming off a played well but lost 2-1.”
