The Glamour Boys squandered a two-goal lead in their DStv Premiership encounter at the weekend, which cost them the chance to move up the table and consolidate their place in the Top 8 with only five games to go.

Hunt was forced to make three substitutions due to injuries – goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi, defender Erick Mathoho and attacker Happy Mashiane, who scored a stunning goal in the first half to put Amakhosi in the lead.

“The first sub was Daniel and he got a hell of a bang on his head, a bit of a concussion. Tower (Mathoho) seems to have done his groin, but I am not sure. He couldn’t carry on after 30 minutes, those were the two forced changes,” Hunt told the media.

But he was then later again left no choice but to take off Mashiane and Samir Nurkovic, though the latter was also because of fatigue.

“Samir is obviously observing Ramadan and struggling a bit. Mashiane got a bad kick on his ankle and he looked like he had to come off as well. But anyway, I am proud of the players and they are giving me their all, that’s the most important thing. We’ve taken a point, but we would have loved three as that gets us closer to the Top 8, but we have five games left and we will keep working,” the coach explained.
