Hunt: The final ball let us down


Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt felt his side had the better opportunities in their 0-0 draw with Stellenbosch FC at Danie Craven Stadium on Saturday.

Chiefs missed a host of gilt-edged opportunities, especially in the second half as they pushed more men forward in search of an equaliser.

And in the end, it came back to cost them as their winning streak in the DStv Premiership came to an end.

"We had some great chances. They also had one or two but I think we had better chances. I thought our final ball let us down, when we got around the side that final ball," The Amakhosi mentor told SuperSport TV.

"Especially in the first half we had three or four great chances. Away from home, we battled away but we could have lost it. They had two great chances in the second half, they should have scored to be fair. Overall, I thought we had the better opportunities. We played some good stuff at times. But just the final ball.

"All in all, it wasn't a great performance. It was a battling performance, but we move on.

And when asked about his reasons for bringing on Leonardo Castro, Reeve Frosler, Kearyn Baccus and Njabulo Blom, Hunt said:

"We wanted to win the game. We could have lost it as well. You've got to be brave. And sometimes that can hurt you, when we opened up on a bit.

"All in all, you got to say we're moving forward, we're coming up.

"Our away record's good, much better than our away record, that's for sure."
