Hunt – We Need To Get Ourselves Up There Into The Top 5
Gavin Hunt says that Kaizer Chiefs are targeting a top five finish in the DStv Premiership, but will need to get a result against Cape Town City today if they want to reach that target.
Chiefs are currently tenth on 25 points, while City are seventh, five points ahead of Chiefs, and a win at the FNB Stadium could close that gap and move Chiefs into a top eight spot.
Hunt says that with nine games remaining that target is achievable, but they need to build momentum going forward.
“The five days were more about mental recovery than training and to just give the players a little bit of a break,” Hunt told the club’s website.
“Now we have a final push as we will be playing every two to three days.”
“We’ve got nine games left, we need to get ourselves up there into the top five.”
“I believe we can, there’s no doubt about it. We need to start this Wednesday against Cape Town City. They are one of the best teams in the league, but we have to do the job.”
“When we played them in Cape Town in January, we got two goals up early and then we started to give the ball away. A bit of slackness and nerves set in. We won, but it was not pretty at the end.”
“We need to keep trying to build on the momentum. I think from where we were, we have come around a little bit. We can talk all day, but results are the bottom line.”
