Baxter: Our passing and movement was great

Kaizer Chiefs

Stuart Baxter praised the style of his side's attacking display in defeating Baroka 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Khama Billiat opened the scoring for Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on just nine minutes ahead of Daniel Cardoso's 27th minute goal, as Denwin Farmer netted a 59th minute consolation for the away side.

Coming off the back of a 0-0 draw with TS Galaxy at the weekend, Chiefs were far more free-flowing and positive going forward.

Keagan Dolly was especially instrumental as Amakhosi dominated the first half and despite some shaky moments after the break, Baxter was delighted with some 'great passing and movement'.

He told SuperSport: "It's been a long time since this stadium has seen the attacking play we produced in the first-half.

"Credit to the players. They did a great job. Their passing and movement was great.

"I thought we had a little issue with their long-ball game. Fact is we should have gone in 4 or 5-0. And we didn't and then when they score, then there's a panic. And I didn't like that. I didn't like the fact that there was a mental looseness about the second half. Yes, we had chances to kill the game but we didn't.

"There are things we will certainly have to work on. I like the three points. It puts us in a more comfortable position than if we lost 2-1 and I'll take some of the positives from the attacking side of the game. But our attitude and staying focused in the here and now needs work to be done."

Baxter added: "Keagan went in tonight, did a great job. Fantastic. Really pleased for him."
