Hunt – It’s Only Halftime

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt, while pleased to get an away goal, says it is only halftime in their CAF Champions League tie with PWD Baremba.

Chiefs won 1-0 on Sunday away in Cameroon, and will face their opponents in the home leg on Friday.

Hunt says he would like to see Chiefs score some goals in the second leg, and wrap up the preliminary round tie.

“I think it’s important to score some goals you know, that’s something we’re lacking, the cutting edge, we’ve got a couple of good strikers, but they haven’t scored, you know, it’s a problem,” Hunt said after the first leg.

“Most importantly we scored an away goal, but can’t relax, it’s only halftime, so we’ve still got another whole game to go.”

“You know they’ve got a lot of fight in their team, they’re a strong physical team, but hopefully we can enough to try and make it a bit easier and safer when we play in Johannesburg.”

“Well, they’ve got to come this side now, to us, I mean we’re going home. We won’t train with any intensity for the next game on Friday, that’s for sure.

“We’ll do recovery, and see what and who is available, it looks like we’ve got a few problems with one or two players, and I just hope it doesn’t effect our game next week, which is a bigger concern at this time.”

Hunt confirmed that one of those players he is concerned about his Ramahlwe Mphahlele, who has a hamstring issue.
