Gavin Hunt eager to ‘keep going’ after Wits upsets Chiefs

Johannesburg – Gavin Hunt says Bidvest Wits are determined to finish the season with a strong run of results after surprising Kaizer Chiefs with a 1-0 win on Sunday.

Chiefs dominated long period of the Absa Premiership clash at FNB Stadium, had a penalty appeal turned down, and missed a point-blank chance through Samir Nurkovic.

However, Wits soaked up the pressure and kept themselves in the game at 0-0 until Bienvenu Eva Nga produced the stoppage-time winner for the Clever Boys.

Hunt was pleased with his team’s performance and is hoping for more positive results in the remaining league fixtures against Black Leopards and Polokwane City.

“I thought the first-half we were excellent, I was really disappointed when we came to half-time, we could’ve turned it in, we had some good opportunities in the first-half and once you start turning the ball over in the second-half, when they’re getting in the game you know,” said Hunt  after the match.

“Nurkovic had a big chance in the end there, they should make a 1-0 but it’s a story of our season we’re not scoring and if you score, then you’re making it easy for yourselves, which we didn’t do.

“It turned for us a little bit today we got the ball in the end but I mean you know we could’ve been 1-0 done but we could’ve been one or two [up] in the first-half,  that has been a story of our season. Maybe it is a bit too late but be that as it many, it is what it is I’m happy for the boy [Eva Nga],” he continued.

Leopards and Polokwane, that’s going to be difficult games, we played a top team and we’re going to play bottom teams, so it won’t be easy.
