Hunt Speaks Ahead Of Chiefs Return

With the battle to move away from the bottom half of the DStv Premiership log set to take centre stage this weekend in the clash between Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United, Gavin Hunt has spoken of his team’s intentions.

Both teams are under pressure going into the match, following their slow start to the season after Stuart Baxter’s Amakhosi collected just six points out of a possible 18 from six matches, while the Chilli Boys have picked up only five points from the same number of matches.

Chiefs are 12th on the log, with Chippa in 13th place and Hunt says they want to improve to move up the standings.

“We are obviously trying to do the best we can and trying to get ourselves up the league a little bit more. We let ourselves down in the last couple of games, I think, we should have got a lot more points which would have certainly got us a little bit more stable. We’ll have another go on Saturday,” said the coach, speaking through the club’s media department.  

Chippa chairman, Siviwe ‘Chippa’ Mpengesi, has said that the team’s slow start to the season is concerning, although he remains in support of the former Chiefs coach.

The major concern for Hunt going into the Chiefs match is that the team struggled to get competitive friendly matches during the FIFA international break due to non-availability of other professional clubs in the Eastern Cape, where Chippa is based, in Gqeberha. 

The clash gets underway on Saturday at 17:30.
