Hunt: We've got to knuckle down


Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt says his charges will need to 'knuckle down and work harder' following their MTN8 elimination at the hands of Orlando Pirates.

Chiefs entered the second leg of their semi-final trailing 3-0 on aggregate, but it was more of the same on Sunday as they lost 2-0 at FNB Stadium.

When asked if he had any learnings about his side over the two legs, Hunt told SuperSport TV, "It's a true reflection and we've certainly got to knuckle down and work harder and do the other part of the game which we're not doing.

"There's a part of the game we are not doing because of a lot of things and we've got to try and get that right."

Hunt felt the game could have been different had Siphelele Ntshangase's shot in the second gone in just before Pirates took the lead.

"I thought the first half was very dominant but not enough creation of chances. Second half, I don't know if the ball was over the line. And ten seconds later, they run down the other end and score," he added.

"If that ball goes in it's a different game, but that's the way it's kind of being going for us of late. But ja, there's not really much to say about the situation."
