Kaizer Chiefs head coach Stuart Baxter took a leaf out the legendary Arsene Wenger's book to help his side rescue a point against AmaZulu.

The Soweto giants needed a late penalty from Keagan Dolly to salvage a 1-1 draw against Benni McCarthy's charges on Saturday afternoon.

Baxter noted his side missed opportunities once again as they have now only secured one win from six matches.

"We're used to it[Missed chances]. We said at half-time we've got to change. That ten percent would have a massive impact on our season. We played away against Sundowns, played well, dominated large periods of the game but lost," Baxter told SuperSport after the game.

"And today we played against a team that finished second last season. And again I thought we dominated large parts of the game where we should score. We didn't and it looked like we could have got beat. The lads kept going. Created a few chances at the death. Opened ourselves to a lot of counterattacks trying to get the point and all credit to the boys for sticking it out.

When asked about his late changes, he added, "We really wanted to get as many attacking players on. You know Arsene Wenger he says when you are looking to win the game get your attacking players on the field as soon as possible. And basically we tried to accommodate all of them. Give Happy the wide role where he can get a few crosses in. Get Lebo closer to the strikers. Keagan wide to drive inside.

"We refused to get beat. I think as I say the ten percent if we can improve the critical phases that decide games of football. You know we played the good football to get someone in, you've got to bury that. We can't open the second half like I said critical phase, don't open up too much and we open ourselves massively, make a mistake and they score. We can't do that. That's not a recipe for winning football. There's a lot that needs to change to make it a recipe for winning football.

"The boys are working very hard. And I hope the supporters make sure they support them in that. We need to try make something last a long time, not just get a lucky win and then everybody's happy and you can have a drink at the weekend."
