Chiefs coach at a loss for words

Premiership

Kaizer Chiefs' continued struggles has reached a point where even coach Gavin Hunt is dumbfounded by the events taking place within his team.

Chiefs are in dire straits after yet another DStv Premiership defeat – the latest being 2-1 to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila, who have now managed to move out of the relegation play-off spot.

For Amakhosi, they continue to languish in ninth position but are now just five points ahead of 15th-placed Chippa United, whom they also lost to a week ago.

Hunt was unable to give an account of his team's performance that saw them reduced to 10 men inside only 38 minutes, before conceding a stoppage time penalty to suffer their ninth defeat of the season.

"It's very difficult to explain, I don't know. It's actually mind-boggling... I thought we deserved a little bit more again, but we're making mistakes. It's unacceptable," Hunt told the club's media.

"We just [have to] battle on. Same player - three [times]. You've certainly got your back against the wall but it doesn't help. It was really even until the red card and then the defending, again...

"With four games left, we're going to have to certainly try and win all four of them and then see from there."
