Hunt: Castro should've had two goals

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt felt his side should've been 'out of sight' in the first with the amount of chances they had against Baroka.

Chiefs dropped points yet again after their 1-1 draw on Tuesday evening, but Hunt felt Baroka forward Evidence Makgopa was real menace for his defence.

Makgopa's flick-on set up Thamsanqa Masiya for the opening goal of the match and Hunt said that Makgopa won the aerial duel on the day despite being much shorter than Chiefs' centre-backs.

"A lot of opportunities again. We could've been out of sight in the first half," Hunt told SuperSport TV.

"I mean Castro should have scored two when he came on. Happy should have scored in the first half, Reeve had an open goal in the first half.

"Baroka did well, they work hard, they're strong, they're fit, but we knew that. But all in all, disappointed with the result but we showed a little bit of character to come back. But we've got to be tougher. Can't concede a goal like that.

"Our two centre-backs they must be eight feet tall and their 27 was outjumping them the whole day.

"I thought their 27 [Makgopa] was unbelievable. Fantastic performance from the boy up front. That's how the goal came. Anyway, it's what we've got to get better at. We've got to get a lot more game toughness in us and a little bit more awareness."

In finishing off Hunt said his side were looking to 'embrace' the occasion of the Soweto derby against Orlando Pirates on Saturday, although he admitted it will have a different feel to it with no spectators.

"It's obviously something that with the situation is very difficult to play," said the former SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits tactician.

"We'll embrace it and face it on Saturday. We've got an extra day now which he haven't had for the past couple of weeks. Hopefully we can try and regroup and get one or two back."
