Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has called for introspection at the struggling champions following the heavy 3-0 loss to Premiership returnees AmaZulu.
Wits' winless run stretched to five games as they were undone by a wonder strike from Michael Morton and Rhulani Manzini brace at King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night.
The Students, who drew 1-1 with Kaizer Chiefs in their previous match, are languishing in the relegation zone with two points, and Hunt admits they are now in a "dog fight" ahead of Saturday's visit of unbeaten Orlando Pirates.
Hunt told SuperSport TV: "It's unbelievable, we can't concede three goals like this, and three goals in the last game [3-1 defeat to Golden Arrows]. They are coming right through us from one or two passes from good attacking positions from us. It is something we have to work on, and now we are in a real dog fight, so we'll keep fighting."
The four-time PSL winner refused to blame bad luck for their predicament.
"No, no, no, no, you make your own luck. We can't look for excuses like that. I will never say that. The luck is gone, now we must just keep fighting. You have got to give AmaZulu a lot of credit, they won every second ball. We had good possession in good areas, again we just can't get that final touch. But you cant concede three goals and expect to win games."
He added: "We are forced to make changes all the time, but that is no excuse. We have to be better, we should be better. A lot of players have to look at themselves and me as well. I need to look at myself as well, we are all included in this thing."
