Hunt highlights Chiefs downfall

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has reflected on their CAF Champions League defeat to Wydad Atheltic Club and highlighted what led to his side's downfall.

Chiefs were once again on the losing end this past weekend as their winless run stretched to eight matches across all competitions.

Amakhosi eventually played their Champions League group C tie against Wydad, which was initially scheduled for 13 February, at 4 August Stadium on Sunday evening.

The Soweto giants were humbled with a 4-0 scoreline by the two-time continental champions, and Hunt bemoaned his side's poor defending for three of the goals conceded.

"Obviously the scoreline doesn't look good but I thought we had a good couple of opportunities ourselves," said Hunt after the match in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

"Obviously we got caught on two back-post balls for the first two goals, and the third goal as well, but all-in-all we had a good couple of opportunities on a difficult pitch in a difficult situation.

"So, we kept going and obviously at the end they got two [goals] right at the end, but I thought in the second half we got stronger and better, with some good opportunities. We tried to play but obviously it wasn't to be."

Chiefs will next face Angolan outfit Petro de Luanda at FNB Stadium on Saturday (18h00).
