The veteran Bernard Parker has been a stalwart in the side of Baxter this campaign. He has deputised in a variety of positions, from midfield, to wide and forward.
At 35 years old, his age has not compromised the faith instilled in him. The likes of Samir Nurković, Leonardo Castro and Lebogang Manyama have all had minutes under their belt as well and are in contention to feature this weekend.
“We do have some fresh legs.” Stuart Baxter said to the media.
“For the next game we are expecting Bernard Parker to be back. Samir Nurković has a good hour under his belt, Leonardo Castro has had time on the field and Lebogang Manyama has had more time on the field, so we have a full squad to look at now,” he said
“Pirates is a completely different game, how we set up tactically against them waits to be seen. We will suck on this caramel and then it’s back to work,” the coach added.
Baxter has complimented Kaizer Chiefs on grabbing three points against Baroka FC last weekend. He hopes this will hold them in good stead for the Soweto Derby.
“We have Pirates up next. Traditionally one that you think the game before ‘will they take their eye off the ball?’.
“On both accounts I think we kept discipline well,” he confirmed.
