JOHANNESBURG - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter expects his team to raise their performance when they take on Polokwane City tonight in the Premier Soccer League.

Last week, Amakhosi lost 1-0 to Platinum Stars in the semifinal of the Telkom Knockout.

Baxter has called on the defending champions to step up their game.

"I'm expecting the players to give it their best. At the end of the night, they need to be able to say they've given it everything they've got."

Chiefs will be without defender Morgan Gould following a two-match suspension handed to him by the PSL for assaulting Bidvest Wits player Getaneh Kebede.

The assault took place on 9 November when Gould punched Kebede in the face.

Gould has pleaded guilty to the charge.

Chiefs have also handed down their own suspension to Gould.

Chiefs's Vina Maphosa said, "The club fined Morgan R50,000 and a one match ban which will run concurrently with the suspension imposed by the PSL."

Kick-off for tonight's game is at 7:30pm.
