Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter says he is happy with his team’s performance during Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Raja Casablanca in the Caf Champions League, but added that Amakhosi should have taken their chances in that game.

“We played well last night, but we didn’t take our chances,” Baxter told the club’s official website.

“Towards the end, we were pushing and pushing for the goal that we needed to get at least equal with Raja. That’s when they punished us on mistakes.

“Most games are decided in transition and this game was a typical example. However, I will continue to have my players play like this, to always play positive and go forward to try creating a goal.

“We certainly lost concentration in those first five minutes.

“Still, my players did a good job last night. But we failed to profit from the chances that came our way. We should have taken those and be more clinical. However, overall, I am proud of my team’s performance last night.”
