Baxter desperate for Botswana victory

Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter says his side’s hunger for victory is intense, ahead of Saturday’s Africa Nations Championship second leg qualifier against Botswana.

Bafana currently enjoy a 2-0 first leg advantage over the Zebras and are widely expected to finish the job against the Southern African minnows at Moruleng Stadium in North West on Saturday afternoon (3pm).

Baxter told the Sowetan, “We are going to stay committed to our rationale that we want to get international experience into more players and get some young players on the field and at the same time win the game.

“There will be changes and we will change the way we play as well. We will challenge the squad by playing in a different way. We will see how it goes. Does that mean we don’t care about getting a result? Absolutely not. We are desperate to win and go through.”

The winner will face Swaziland or Zambia over two legs in the third round in August. If Bafana prevail, they will likely face Chipolopolo as they are 4-0 up from the first leg.
