Hunt: We’ve been better this season


This is despite the fact that the defending champions are sitting bottom of the Absa Premiership table after 13 matches on 11 points.

The Clever Boys played to a 1-1 draw with Polokwane City at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday. It was their fifth draw this campaign, which is one less than they managed all of last season.

City took the lead through Rodney Ramagalela’s deflected effort and Wits pulled one back with a late goal from lanky forward Eleazar Rodgers.

“That has been the story of our season. I mean we’ve played better this year than we did last year and last year this time we were well clear, winning the league, so you tell me about football,” Hunt said after the game.

“We’ve got to work ourselves out of it and we can. We are good enough to win many games in a row, but we can’t miss the chances we are missing. If we’d scored the chances we had we’d be top, clear.”

The former SuperSport United coach bemoaned a poor first half from his players against City, saying they could have wrapped up the tie by half time.

“First half we should have been five or six-nil up. In the second half they had one shot at goal, it hits his knee and then it deflects and you are 1-0 down. That’s been the story of the season.

“You are normally happy with a point when you come to Polokwane, but you can’t be happy with that. I have been coming here for 35 years and I have never dominated like that, so what do you want me to say?”
