Ahead of Kaizer Chiefs’ match against Baroka on Tuesday, Gavin Hunt says that while it was a ‘horrendous’ start to the 2020/2021 campaign, there is still a long way to go this season.
Chiefs have had a bit of change in fortune in their last four games however, winning three and drawing one, and are now 7th on the DStv Premiership table.
Hunt says though he’s obviously not pleased with their points tally, having accumulated 17 points in their 13 games.
“No, not at all. We had an horrendous start, we haven’t done well, but we’ve shown a little bit more as we’ve gone on. It’s important now to improve every week, every game, and try and get better.”
“There’s still a long way to go, it’s not even half way yet, so it’s a long way to go.”
Hunt said he is not thinking about the derby against Orlando Pirates, that follows the Baroka game, and has no intention of resting players with that game in mind.
“We can’t rest anybody, because we don’t have… we can’t rest anybody.”
“We’ve just got to keep playing, As I say, if you score, you can give yourself a lift, which can give you something to hold onto.”
“I don’t even think about the derby, we’ve got Baroka on Tuesday.”
Hunt was also pleased with Samir Nurkovic, who wore the captain’s armband for the first time in their draw with Stellenbosch on the weekend.
“Ja, he leads by example you know, he’s what we need in the future at this football club. We need people with game toughness, that are mental tough, and he’s one of them.”
