Baxter Wary Of Hunt’s Wits

Stuart Baxter says that any team coached by Gavin Hunt is a difficult one to face after Kaizer Chiefs drew Wits in the Nedbank Cup semifinals.

The two sides beat SuperSport United and AmaZulu respectively in the quarterfinals of the competition and were then drawn against each other in today’s draw.

Baxter, who will be hoping to see his side retain the trophy they won last season, says that his players will need to be on their A-game.

Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, he said, "To say we are happy to be drawn against Wits or any other team will be disrespectful. To us this is just a different challenge. It is a tough draw, for us any team we play is tough. Playing Wits maybe in Johannesburg will mean less travelling which is a positive out of the draw.

"Playing any team that is coached by Gavin (Hunt) is always tough. We have to play our A-game against them. There are no easy games in a cup-tie. In cup games there are upsets and miscalculations, we will prepare accordingly. A derby will be a fantastic final. Maybe that will be a carrot for the players.”

The venue and dates for the fixture are yet to be announced.
