Hunt: The log table doesn't lie


Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has shared his thoughts after claiming their second win of the DStv Premiership campaign over AmaZulu on Wednesday.

Chiefs finally got back to winning ways in domestic competitions, after a run of seven games of only losses and draws, as they defeated AmaZulu 1-0 at Kings Park Stadium this week.

Amakhosi have subsequently catapulted themselves from 14th position to 10th on the league table, having accumulated 10 points from their opening 10 games thus far.

Hunt admitted that, despite the slender scoreline, any victory is huge for the club right now as they look to finally come out of the doldrums.

"Right now for us, any win is a big win. We should have won a few more games but the table doesn't lie, and we've been poor defensively," Hunt told the club's media after the match.

"But as I said from the start, if you get a guy like Samir playing in your team every week... It's like what happened last year, he played all those first 10 games and he was brilliant, and scored all your goals and then you've got half a chance. We haven't had that.

"We worked on a shape before we came here yesterday [Tuesday] to try a nullify them a little bit, [because] they've got some good players – they've invested in their team heavily up front.

"I knew their wide players are dangerous and, after the first half, they got in behind us once or twice maybe, but we had some really good chances.

"I thought Samir, who hasn't played for 90 minutes [in months], was fantastic. I didn't want to play him but we've only got one striker available, so it's a problem."
