Hunt Bemoans International Break After TKO Exit

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says the FIFA international break came at a bad time for his side following their Telkom Knockout exit at the hands of Baroka.

The Clever Boys' defence of the Telkom Knockout crown came to an end after suffering a 1-0 loss to Baroka on Sunday afternoon.

Hunt felt the international break worked against his side, although he didn't want to single out any of his players.

“I thought we had the best four chances of the game. You can’t gift a free header inside the six-yard box. Look at the chances [we’ve had] in the end. But we have to give them credit, they stuck at it and once they got a goal they never got out. We gotta give them credit. We were not good enough certainly in the last third,” the four time league winning coach told SuperSport after the match.

“This is what happens after the FIFA break, I don’t want to single out [players] but you see people are off the mark. It happens every time. I knew were were going to be in trouble coming here. [But] I didn’t expect the mistakes to happen like that. It’s part and parcel of the game.

“We made changes, changed the shape of the team. We tried to reinforce in the game but you gotta have a better delivery into a certain area. You’re not going to get through them. They were sitting on the box. You gotta be better. You expect better from international players in certain areas. But it wasn’t to be. The FIFA break doesn’t help us."
