Hunt: Downs Know How To Delay The Game

Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt says Mamelodi Sundowns have the experience of knowing how to delay a game.

The Clever Boys and Sundowns settled for a share of the spoils after playing to a 1-1 draw on Saturday evening.

Sundowns played the final 50 minutes with 10 men after Wayne Arendse was sent off in the first half, and Hunt feels the Brazilians slowed the game down.

“I think we deserved to win the game in my honest opinion. But obviously, you know we just didn’t have the quality in the final third," Hunt told SuperSport after the game.

“We had enough chances to win. So I’m very disappointed that we didn’t win the game and obviously they are experienced and have the know-how to delay the game and they did well so you got to give them credit for that.

“We got to be better in the final third and all that, but it’s been an Achilles heel for us all season. We created overloads.

“But it was very difficult because they stayed compact in the middle and you couldn’t go through to the middle so we had to overload them from the side.

“And between both our fullbacks, I must have had twenty to thirty crosses each. I don’t think one hit a good area, so there’s your problem.

“Because when a team sits in there it’s difficult and we had to break them down and we didn’t break them down that’s pretty much the bottom line,” Hunt said.
