Bidvest Wits Mamelodi Sundowns Moon relishing Wits, Hunt reunion

Mamelodi Sundowns fullback Bryce Moon is looking forward to facing his former employers Bidvest Wits and one-time coach Gavin Hunt.
The Premiership big-spenders will collide at Loftus Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with both on eight points from four matches - two points behind SuperSport United, Moroka Swallows and AmaZulu, but with a game in hand on the pace-setting trio.
"It will not be only about me but the whole team on Saturday," Moon, who traded loyalties in the off-season, told Downs' official website.
"But coming up against your old team is always exciting and motivating. I will get to play against my old friends and any player would be pumped up to do well.
"I for one look forward to Saturday’s match because I also get to come up against not just my old teammates but also my former coach, since Gavin Hunt coached me at SuperSport United."
He continued: "We will be focused on getting maximum points and not topping the log like many would think. Yes, that’s a bonus because all the teams are ultimately playing to be number one but the league is a marathon and not a sprint. We want to take it one game at a time and keep our feet on the ground."
"If we take our chances, we should get maximum points. The other motivation for us is that, as a team we are creating more than six chances per match and that’s a very good sign. In order to score, you must create but to win you must take your chances.
"Every game will be difficult for Sundowns because every player from the opposition team is always motivated to play well against us. I know this because I have played against Sundowns with more than three teams.
"The gap in between matches for us is also another factor worth mentioning because we are now three months into the league and we have only played four matches. The stop and start does affect the momentum and rhythm a little bit. At least we are not the only team affected by this," concluded the 27-year-old.
