Hunt outlines Chiefs' major concern

CAF Champions League

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has stressed one major concern as his side prepares for their CAF Champions League preliminary round second leg.

Chiefs hold a 1-0 aggregate lead after beating Cameroonian side PWD Bamenda in Limbe on Sunday and will next host the return leg at FNB Stadium on Friday evening.

Amakhosi have been rather toothless this season without the services of key striker Samir Nurkovic, who is still nursing an injury, with the likes of Erick Mathoho and Yagan Sasman responsible for three of their six goals scored in nine outings thus far.

Hunt has therefore outlined this as a huge problem and is calling on his attackers to put out a more clinical performance this weekend as they look to make home advantage count and progress to the next round of the Champions League.

"I think it's important to try and score a few goals, I think that's something we're lacking – the cutting edge," Hunt told the club's media team.

"We've got a couple of good strikers but they haven't scored, and that's a problem. Our final pass [on Sunday] wasn't as good as it should have been at the end of the movement.

"But the pitch had a lot to do with that, I thought the pitch was very difficult to play on. Most importantly we scored an away-goal, but we can't relax [because] it's only 'half-time'.

"So we've still got another full game to go, they've got a lot of fight in that team and they're a strong, physical team but hopefully we'll have enough to try and make it a little easier and safer when we play in Johannesburg."
