JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter has warned his players that those who take their foot off the accelerator in the next two league matches will not play in the Nedbank Cup final.

Chiefs are on the verge of winning the Absa Premiership title after Orlando Pirates and Platinum Stars dropped points.

Despite Amakhosi needing just a single point from their two remaining league fixtures to be crowned league champions, Baxter says the champagne is still on ice.

"I'm not here to congratulate. When we start the season we always keep a bottle of champagne somewhere in case something good happens. So that will stay where it is until something good happens."

Despite Amakhosi needing just a single point to clinch the title, Baxter's aware that there is no room for complacency.

"We're going to go full out; I'll pick the final team based on what I see. More than anything we have an obligation toward the league.

They don't just expect us to go and hang the shirts out to dry. If there is any complacency [among the players] then they better lose it quickly."
