Hunt – Swallows Are A Good Team

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt knows that Swallows will be up for the game tonight.

The two Soweto clubs meet at Dobsonville in a DSTV Premiership match tonight, and Hunt says that their opponents have shown they’re a very good team.

Swallows are currently second on the table, with Chiefs in 11th spot, although they are only 3 points behind Brandon Truter’s team.

Both teams were in action on Saturday, and have not had much time to recover, let alone train.

“After playing on Saturday and having to play on again Tuesday, you can only go through a few things and talk about it,” Hunt was quoted saying on the club’s website.

“We also watched a few video clips but nothing more than that. I don’t believe in keeping a consistent team. We don’t have too many options now, but we will try to play majority of the players.”

“As mentioned before, we still have a long way to go to get to what I deem a good team. Swallows are a good team, with good pace and have made good signings. They are among the top teams.”

“When you look at the league, the teams that have beefed up their squads are doing well, and we are in a unique position and we have made the best out of the squad we’ve got.”

“We are going into each and every game with the mindset to win. There is no negativity of going there looking for a point.  You start with a good mindset and the game itself will dictate how we play.”
