|Outraged: Stuart Baxter refused to greet Chiefs fans last night|
STUART BAXTER'S Kaizer Chiefs pulled off a sensational late escape in Polokwane last night - and then had another blast at the AmaKhosi for booing the club's Zimbabwean Kingston Nkatha.
The double-winners won 2-0 against Roger de Sa's Ajax Cape Town to extend their lead at the top of the PSL to six points with eight left to play last night with Gavin Hunt's Wits held 0-0 by AmaTuks.
But those two late goals from Knowledge Musona failed to calm the Wolverhampton-born coach who became the first foreign boss to win the title in his first season last year.
With a brutal African Champion League trip to Congo's AS Vita to come this weekend, Baxter was seen at one point gesticulating to the fans as the booed their favourite target Kingston Nkatha during the clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
Afterwards Baxter, 60, could barely contain his fury as he REFUSED to thank the 15,000 fans and admitted he was struggling to live happily with the AmaKhosi fans.
He said: "I will be brutally honest, usually I go and greet the fans but I will not greet the fans tonight.
"What they do with Kingston ... when Kingston was one on one with the goalkeeper we can thank the fans for that. Because he was so nervous he just blasted it. Now we can thank the fans for that, and I will not greet them.
"It leaves the question do you want to work at a football club where the fans behave that way to your players when they're top of the league and giving it their all?
"I don't know, that's a question I am going to have to answer."
"Knowledge pops up and gets two superb goals and then they run out the game , there must have been some tired legs there, but it wasn't evident."
"We missed a lot of chances, especially me, I got most of the chances in the game, I kept going, I knew I was going to score and finally in the last two minutes I got the goals."
