Hunt – We Have To Be Better There

While disappointed not to get a win, Kaizer Chiefs Head Coach Gavin Hunt says their 0-0 draw with Petro De Luanda in the CAF Champions League on Tuesday was probably a fair result.

Hunt says that the team played more of a counter attack game, but they were let down by their final ball.

He said while there were a few good moments, he did feel the team looked a bit tired at times.

“Look, we knew they were gonna be much tougher at home, and they were,” Hunt said in the post match presser.

“But we also played that way, where we tried to play a little bit more counter attack. So we came back a little bit, 10-15 metres, we dropped the team down. And it worked well, I just thought our final ball, our final pass around the box, let us down.”

“And that’s just due to you know, quality so we have to be better there. But all in all, you know, we had a good couple of moments, they had a good couple of moments, so all in all, yeah, that looked a real tired performance from both sides. It is one of those things so obviously the draw I think is a fair result.”

The draw sees Chiefs third in Group C, on five points, with two games remaining.

“So we got five, we’re gonna possibly have to win and a draw, I think might get us in, you know. But we got Wydad. And we obviously got Horoya away, which is obviously not going to be easy as well. I think, ja, I mean, all in all, we’ve had one bad result even with pre games, which is good. You know, I think we’ve done okay, if you look at the results, only one bad game, even the pre, the four games we played at the beginning. You know, we had some good battling performances.”
