Hunt addresses Chiefs mistakes

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has said there's little they can do to improve on their recent mistakes that have cost the team dearly.

Chiefs have endured a difficult start to the 2020/21 season under Hunt, who inherited Ernest Middendorp's squad without being able to fill in any gaps due to the club's transfer ban.

In his efforts to give players opportunities to prove themselves, while also trying to instil his own philosophy, the four-time league winner has come up short on several occasions as Amakhosi find themselves down in 12th position on the log table.

Recent blunders from the likes of Itumeleng Khune have also not aided their situation, but the former Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United mentor says there's very little he can personally do to eradicate these incidents.

"You can't make sure, you can't do anything about the two individual mistakes we made in the first half, that happens in football," said Hunt.

"All we can do is work on situations but, mistakes like that, you can't practice those things. So, we need to eradicate those errors.

"We did the same against Pirates – made two or three errors, and obviously didn't score the goals to come back – but that's the part where we've got to keep working on, that's all we can do.

"Any mistake on any football pitch is disappointing, and everybody makes mistakes and that's disappointing, but that's football, it's a game of mistakes. It happens and we've got to stick together."
