Chiefs were lacklustre all evening but especially in the first half and were lucky not to lose the game after Galaxy striker Wayde Lekay missed a first-half penalty.

"We got what we deserved," the Amakhosi mentor told SuperSport after the game.

"As the game progressed, we got stronger. We're gonna have to try and get the maximum out of the group of players we have. It's all I can do. Last year they scored 48 goals, 23 from set-pieces, you can see why. The top goalscorer is not playing and he scored half of them. So there's your problem.

"We had unbelievable chances. Have to be taking them. But defensively a little bit better. Clean sheet, something to build on. And we've just got to build, one step at a time. Give these younger ones a go. Obviously when the game gets a little bit helter-skelter like it did today, the younger players go missing a bit because of the physicality.

"All in all, first half they were good. Second half we were better."

Chiefs looked likeliest to score from a set-piece all evening but Hunt said they must not fall into the trap of being over-reliant on dead-ball situations.

"You can't be relying on that," continued the 56-year-old.

"As I said when I arrived here, it's fantastic but your biggest weapon is not playing. He's the guy that scored most of them. And he won't be ready for two or three months.

"We can't just score goals like that. We've got to take more responsibility in those areas and I thought we had some good opportunities as the game went on. But I think was draw was fair. But still nowhere near I want a team to be performing. Especially without the ball. We were way off without the ball."
