Hunt gives up on scoring goals


Chippa United coach Gavin Hunt has conceded that his side has a problem in defending and their goal scoring challenge persists.

The Chilli Boys are bruised after suffering their second consecutive loss in the Dstv Premiership clash with a 3-1 score line against Orlando Pirates at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this past weekend.

Hunt has criticized his players for poor defending which allowed Pirates to come from behind to win the match.

The former Kaizer Chiefs coach reluctantly conceded that his side will struggle in terms of scoring goals this season, as he called for more clean sheets.

“You know we gotta pick up the pieces, we’ve got to keep clean sheets. We are not gonna score goals you know, we don’t have that,” he said.

“But we gotta keep clean sheets, if we keep clean sheets we are gonna win games.

“I’m disappointed with the result, I thought we had the better chances of the two teams. They took theirs and we never took ours.

“We gotta defend better, the defending has been a problem for the club for many years. We gotta get our defending right.”

Chippa United will next face rejuvenated Stellenbosch FC away from home at Daniel Craven Stadium on 25 September.
