Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter was encouraged by what he saw from his charges in the second half against the winless Marumo Gallants.

Chiefs were unable to register their second win after playing to a goalless draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday evening.

Both sides finished the game with 10 men, but Baxter was pleased with how they finished the game after a slow first half.

"I think it was a very difficult game for either team to make any headway. I think as I said before the game I think set-plays were going to be a way of winning the game. I wasn't happy with our intensity in the first half and with our possession," Baxter told SuperSport after.

"Halftime we changed it. Brought Bernard [Parker] on, Lebogang [Manyama] was a bit short in the tank. Bernard gave us a little bit extra, arrived in the box a little bit more, secured the ball around their box. I think we played better. As you say they had those clear-cut chances. It was a difficult one.

"I think at times we did perform better. The first 20 minutes against Royal there was nothing wrong. We gave away a silly goal and go on the backfoot and chase the game and lose the plot.

"Tonight, second half I think we made a bit more progress. We were a bit more solid at the back apart from a couple of set plays where Daniel's helped us out like their keeper helped them out.

"I think we've played more like the way we can play if we're going to start winning games the longer the game went on. Our possession got sharper, our backline was higher and braver. We got balls into their box, we were threatening whereas for long periods against Royal we weren't threatening. But we still want to win games. We don't want to play 0-0."
