Hunt admits 'major problem' at Wits

CAF Confederation Cup

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt admits he has a major concern within his squad.

Wits opened their CAF Confederation Cup group stage campaign with a goalless draw against Horoya at Dobsonville Stadium on Sunday evening.

Hunt admitted after the match that scoring goals in open play has become a major problem for his side after not scoring in three matches.

"The problem for us is we haven't scored in four [three] games now, haven't scored a goal in four games so it's a major problem," he said on the club's official channels.

"But we're not playing badly, that's for sure, so keep going. As I say, four games now we haven't scored a goal.

"I mean a penalty we scored on Tuesday night [against Highlands Park] and we got a corner kick last week and then we lost to SuperSport [United] one nil, so it's a concern."

Hunt was very disappointed with the result against Horoya after his side missed several chances.

"I think they're the happier of the two teams, that's for sure. Very disappointed. I thought we had enough opportunities to win the game, and obviously they played a lot on the counter, so we knew what was expected.

"But we had to be better around the final third, which we weren't. We had opportunities like, woah, but you've got to score."

The Clever Boys will need to travel to Guinea for the away leg, and Hunt admitted he was not looking forward to that side of it.

"I'm looking forward to the game, but I'm not looking forward to getting there and getting back. So it's a round-trip of about a week almost, which is a problem," he explained.

"But I'm looking forward to the game, that's for sure. Once we get there, see what the conditions are all about, you know."
