The game against Libya will likely be played on Friday March 21 or Saturday March 22 with South Africa needing to avoid defeat to ensure they qualify for the finals.
If Libya win they will go to the tournament instead of Bafana.
“The fact that there is three months to the game means we will have to be active between now and then because we are going to get some of our six or seven players back from injury.
“And so those (players) will need to be reintegrated into the team‚” Baxter said.
Bafana drew 1-1 with Paraguay at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Tuesday night.
But he admitted later that would be difficult.
