Baxter – We look to continue where we left off
Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter is confident his team are fighting fit ahead of their Absa Premiership clash against Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday night.
Prior to the break the Amakhosi had shown themselves to be the team to beat and currently top the PSL standings with 46 points from 18 games, 15 points clear of their closest challengers Mamelodi Sundowns.
Speaking ahead of the game on Wednesday night, coach Baxter said his team are ready for action and will look to continue from where they left off.
“Everybody looks fresh. We have one new signing, David (Zulu) joining us during this window period,” said Baxter.
“Kingston Nkhatha left us unexpectedly, but I always work on the assumption that what if one key player gets a long term injury? It is the same with Kingston, we had (Bernard) Parker and (Itumeleng) Khune out on long term injuries and had to work out a plan to survive their absence.
“The next stretch of the league plus the break are the challenges we have to overcome.
“We knew at some stage the games will come thick and fast and we will try to be as competitive as possible.
“I won’t lose sleep if we drop a point here and there, similarly I will not celebrate yet if we gain points, the league is a long way to go.
“I am not thinking about the opponents charging at us. We are physically ready to compete.”
