The Buccaneers tasted defeat for the first time season after going down to the Clever Boys, who have maintained a winning record thus far.

Hunt insists he wasn't too worried about the possession statistics, as this is a results-based game.

“Let them [Pirates] have the ball, they will play the whole day you know and we just have to look after the long ball. The big long ball into the box the whole day which we did,” said Hunt told SuperSport after the match.

“Once we started pressing them then they had problems. I said to players drop back, it’s totally the opposite of what want to play. I mean what’s the game all about? The game is about results isn’t it?

“So you know you can talk all day and say what you want at the end of the day we had two great chances in the first half we should’ve scored and they had their chances they should have scored.

“Ball possession must be 80% / 20%. What counts? Two piece,” he said.

Hunt went on to praise Haashim Domingo, who came off the bench to play a rolein the winning goal.

“We’re little bit short in areas, [Granwald] Scott is out long term, [Daylon] Claasen is out. For me Haashim [Domingo] is a hidden gem. How he hasn’t played for Bafana is a disgrace. That’s what happens, players like that get lost. He’s a fantastic footballer. He was brilliant for us. He can only get better and better,” he said.
