Hunt worried about relegation


Wits remain at the foot of the table midway through the season after losing 1-0 to Free State Stars in their first game of 2018 at Bidvest Stadium on Friday.

"Of course we are worried. We are upset, we are anxious, we want to get away. We know we are better than this. We need to win games by hook or crook," Hunt said.

"We need to get a few wins or a win. Four games here in a row and we have not scored a goal and every game we should have won by plenty of goals. But we need to score and they scored from a corner kick. That's football but we need to score.

"Games like this last year we should have won 5-1 but we are not. You can't miss the chances we are missing."

Hunt was nevertheless impressed with the debuts of new signings Edwin Gyimah and Lehlohonolo Majoro, and winger Sifiso Myeni, who was recalled from a loan spell at SuperSport United.

"They were very good, I thought the three players were very good. They were exceptional and did very well.

"But it is not about the three players, it is about the team. We didn't win, we should have won by a country mile again but it doesn't happen, simple as that."

Hunt also gave comment on the decision to terminate Steven Pienaar's contract six months into his stay at Milpark.

"He played a lot of games, it was just unfortunate it didn't work out. It was unfortunate."

The Students have 11 points from 15 matches, and next host Hunt's former employers SuperSport this Wednesday (19h30).
