Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter was critical of his side's defending in the defeat to Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday evenning.

Chiefs suffered their first defeat of the the DStv Premiership season after going down 2-0 to Sundowns at Loftus Versfeld on Sunday evening.

Chiefs missed quite a few chances on the night, but Baxter was surprised with how Sundowns were able to get the goals.

"I have to say we started the game very well. I think the first 20 minutes we dominated the game completely and as you say during that 20 minutes you have to score. Because we did have good chances. And then as a sort of cold shower came their goal. It was a very poor goal from our side. And it wasn't reflective of the game at all," Baxter told SuperSport after the game.

"I think we went on the backfoot for 15 minutes and we waited for Sundowns to try and put balls behind our back three and then I think the last 15 minutes we got the game back in the first half. So we go in 1-0 down but I think we've had the better share of the play."

"We came out the second half, we changed the way we're going to press them and suddenly they can't get out and we've got them penned in. And then after 70 minutes, we conceded a goal. I still don't know how we conceded it. It wasn't great play, it was just someone twisting and getting himself to the byline and crossed it and we didn't deal with it.

"And then you've got to start chasing your own tail. And we lose our rhythm. But still we're not out the game and we miss a penalty."
