Hunt doesn’t prioritise matches

Telkom Knockout

Hunt explained that he fielded a full-strength side, in The Students’ surprise 2-0 defeat against Polokwane City on Wednesday, without fear of injury or suspension as every match is crucial.

“I don't think our loss has any bearing on Saturday's game [against SuperSport United],” he says.

“I know there are a few clubs who do prioritise certain things ahead of others, but we don't do that. I played players with bookings and all sorts of things last night, so that showed that I don't prioritise.”

This goes against Hunt’s comments earlier in the month, when he rested Sibusiso Vilakazi for a game against Moroka Swallows because he was on a yellow card.

SuperSport United coach Gordon Igesund shared Hunt's sentiments and added, for him as a new coach, every game is of equal importance.

"It's exactly the same for me. Last night I fielded three players who are three yellow cards, and we played with no fear of suspension or injury," Igesund says.

"We can't worry afford to worry about future matches, every match is important.”
