The struggling Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart ‘Stu’ Baxter has urged his men to bury their worries and soldier on with their efforts of restoring their pride. The PSL and Nedbank Cup champions started the 2013/2014 season on a very low key as they are roaming in position nine of the log, with four points after three games.
This calls for serious attention for Stuart’s troops and that’s why Stuart Baxter told kaizerchiefs.com that he is looking for solutions to end the poor start of the campaign to defend the “Double”. “We have to look for solutions and address this very quickly. We will have to go back to the drawing board and be ready for our next game. We have to bounce back no doubt about it,” said Baxter.
The English man has thrown a rope to all his men who are in a deep hole of embarrassment to help them dust off worries and work harder on their game. However, Baxter is well aware that the starting point for his men is to do introspection. “We have to look at ourselves, work harder and that you cannot buy unfortunately,” he told kaizerchiefs.com.
The Glamour Boys are still licking their wounds after the 3-1 bashing they received from SuperSport United on Saturday, 31 August, at Lucas Moripe Stadium. Adding to the catalogue of woes for Amakhosi was the loss against fierce-rivals Orlando Pirates in the 1st leg of the MTN8 semi-final by 1-0, which means that Stuart Baxter’s men will limp to the 2nd leg clash with the Bucs on 24 September 2013 with their tails stashed in between the legs.
Meanwhile, Amakhosi will be looking to restore their pride when they meet with the KwaZulu-Natal based side, Maritzburg United on Saturday, 14 September at the FNB stadium.
