Kaizer Chiefs defender Morgan Gould has told Goal that the players should be able to pick themselves up against Maritzburg United at the FNB Stadium this coming weekend.

AmaKhosi will be looking to set the record straight against their KwaZulu Natal opponents having lost with a heavy score in their previous game, and Gould says it is not entirely Stuart Baxter’s job to tell them to improve.

“We know what we did wrong against SuperSport United. I don’t think the coach needs to tell us that we need to improve in our next game against Maritzburg United. We know that and we will do that,” Gould told Goal.

Although Chiefs threw away their lead at half time to concede three goals in the second half, the former SuperSport United captain believes the defeat came at the right time for them to work on their mistakes.

“We have got a whole lot of senior players that all of us agreed what we did on the night wasn’t what we are known to be doing, but it’s one of those things where the unfortunate happened.

“However, I think the fortunate part is that it happened early so we can correct our mistakes,” he added.
