Maritzburg United's 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits had Gavin Hunt expressing his frustration over the state of his home ground and his side's busy schedule.
The Clever Boys were looking to close the gap on Absa Premiership log leaders Kaizer Chiefs but Eric Tinkler's side had other ideas, instead claiming a win that stengthens their sixth-place position.

Fifth-place Wits still have three games in hand on Amakhosi but can now only reach 39 points should they win all three, while Chiefs are sitting on 45 points.
"Yeah obviously disappointed you know. I mean we knew it's going to be tough for us, playing every two to three days, extra time, blah blah blah, you know," said a frustrated Hunt after the match.
"It is what it is, you know. I think if you last played Friday and Saturday it will give you an extra day [playing on Wednesday] you know, but [our previous game] playing Sunday is close. But it is what it is."
Hunt was not happy with Bidvest Stadium's heavy pitch and also the fact that they have been allowing visitors to get three points at home.
"I think we are better away from home anyway. We are better away from home, much better," he reckoned.
"This place, not good enough, losing 1-0. We've lost three games here. The pitch is heavy here as well."
Losing to Maritzburg means Wits are slowly moving away from the league title but the coach felt it is not a big blow for the Students.
Instead, he is more frustrated by their busy programme and comforted by the fact that having a busy schedule means the club is growing.
"It's not a blow because imagine we play Thursday, Sunday, Wednesday and Sunday," he posited.
"Yeah it's tough. If everybody had the same programme it would be fine but it doesn't work like that. But it means you've been successful, that's the most important thing.
"When you play a lot of games, it mean you are successful."
