Hunt – A Bit Embarrassed

Gavin Hunt felt ‘a bit embarrassed’ after GladAfrica Championship side Richards Bay knocked Kaizer Chiefs out of the Nedbank Cup with a 2-1 win on Sunday.

A disappointed Hunt says his team had more than enough chances to win the game, even when they were down to ten men after Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya was sent off.

But Hunt says they can’t change the result, and congratulated Simo Dladla and his team on the victory.

“Obviously congratulations to them first of all, you know we had enough opportunities to win the game but obviously, you know, conceded the goal which gave them the lifeline and then obviously it was very difficult,” Hunt

“We got back into it, even with a player short, we still managed to create many, many opportunities around the box, inside the box. And then conceded right at the death which obviously disappointed.”

“So very disappointed, actually a bit embarrassed, but you know we can’t change results, so congratulations to them.”

Hunt says it was the first time in his 26 years of coaching that he can recall losing to a team from a lower division.
