Hunt's Swift Response To Relegation Play-Off Talk

Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt was quick to silence any claims his side would be dragged into the relegation play-off picture after the defeat to Black Leopards.

Chiefs suffered their 10th defeat of the DStv Premiership after allowing Leopards to come from behind to claim a 2-1 win at Thohoyandou Stadium.

Hunt was asked if the team could go to the relegation play-offs, he told SuperSport, "Nah, we'll be okay, we'll be okay."

After travelling to Tanzania to face Simba over the weekend, the Amakhosi boss felt they had more than enough time to recover,

"Ja, it's not but look I mean we've done well this season to get what we got with what we got, it was a battle again today," he continued.

"Defending again, two incidents where we should have done better...No excuses [travelling from Tanzania], we had enough couple of days, no excuse for that.

"We had a good couple of chances but obviously upfront we really got two strikers and obviously one is not gonna play more than 60 [minutes] but we had to keep him going, but otherwise we had nothing else you know.

"Obviously it creates a problem, you can't make the change, before it was 1-1 he had a golden chance to tap it in, he didn't score so but I mean he's struggling, he did well for us.

"All in all we had a good couple of opportunities, we could have scored but you gotta score the second goal which I said to them at half-time and it will be easier for you," he continued.

"Obviously we tried to get it today [three points], to try and help us [for top eight], we had a good start and had another good chance to make it 2-0, we didn't score, that's been the problem and obviously one chance they had, they scored. So it's been a problem, you know."
