Hunt: We can't go on like this


The Clever Boys are bottom of the table after 13 matches, but they cannot be ruled out of winning a second straight title just yet. They are 11 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, who have three games in hand.

Wits would need to go on a phenomenal run of form to catch up with Sundowns.

“It’s frustrating,” Hunt said after the Clever Boys played to a 1-1 draw with Polokwane City at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

“We’ve spoken about it every week. We are only nine points from the top and we are rock bottom. The games are moving and we need to start making a move. We need to start winning games. We have been poor at home and good away, but you know that’s football.

“We can’t keep going on like this. We need to win a game or two. We’ve got to keep believing, working hard, doing the right things and keep going. We are good enough to win many games in a row.”

He continued: “It’s going to be difficult to catch anybody like Sundowns. They’ve got the experience and they are a very good side. But we can’t worry about them now. We have to try sort ourselves out.”

Wits have a good chance to collect maximum points for the first time since October 22 when they host Platinum Stars at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday (20h15).

“It’s another big fight on our hands with Platinum Stars. I wish we were playing on Wednesday, but it’s Saturday,” said Hunt.
