Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt shifts focus to league matters after Telkom Knockout tie

Posted: 18 November 2017 Time: 19:51

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he would have rather 'taken three points' at this moment in time, following their win over Kaizer Chiefs.

The Clever Boys advanced to the final of the Telkom Knockout after defeating Steve Komphela's charges 1-0 at the Bidvest Stadium.

Hunt praised Chiefs for the approach in the second half after going a man down.

"First half very good, we looked like we didn't want to score the second goal. In the second half I said to them they're going to throw caution to the wind and they did that, throwing three players and caused us problems," Hunt told SuperSport TV.

"I thought we didn't rotate the ball well in midfield in the second but I thought we defended better. That final ball in the second half didn't come for us, it could have made things easy. You gotta give Chiefs credit, they came at us in the second half, pushed us back. We're happy, I want to move to bigger things this week."

"The second half we played with leg-boots on, we couldn't move. Our two-three yard balls were bad and when we had to play the final ball we couldn't do it today. But it's a cup we take it, I'd rather take three points at the moment. Crazy business this."
