Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Gavin Hunt was left nonplussed after his team’s 2-1 loss to Tshakhuma in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday evening.
A disappointed Hunt watched as his side was reduced to ten men in the first half, before going down 1-0 to the home team. While they managed to fight back to equalise through a second-half penalty, TTM were awarded a stoppage time spot kick to win the game.
Hunt felt his team deserved more from the game, and was really disappointed by the errors committed by his team.
“It’s very difficulty to explain,” Hunt told the club’s media department after the game, “I don’t know, it’s actually mind boggling what I see, but I thought we deserved a little bit more again but ja, making mistakes, it’s unexcusable to make mistakes like that, but we just battle on.”
Hunt was disappointed to concede the late penalty, a second in as many games conceded by Siyabonga Ngezana.
“Same player, ja so it’s certainly got your backs against the wall, doesn’t doesn’t help but ja, it is what it is,” Hunt responded.
Chiefs are now facing a tough challenge of getting into the top eight, with just four games remaining.
“Well ja, we’ve got four games left, we’re gonna have to try and win and certainly four of them and then see from there,” Hunt continued.
With Chiefs not playing this weekend due to the Nedbank Cup final, Hunt says they’ll use the break to regroup.
“This is the longest break we’re gonna have now, seven days, so we’ll have a couple of days and after what we’ve been through the last three weeks, crazy, well, since December, so we’ll have a couple of days and try and regroup and go again,” Hunt concluded.
Chiefs’ next match is in eight days when they host Swallows at the FNB Stadium.
