Hunt now eyes top five finish


With nine matches remaining in their DStv Premiership season, Kaizer Chiefs head coach says they are looking to rope in more victories before the end of the campaign in order to achieve their five top target.

The once glamourous outfit have endured a poor domestic season while enjoying a good run in the Caf Champions League, where they made history by qualifying for the quarterfinals of the competition.

Hunt believes that his troops – in 10th place on the log standings with 25 points – can go beyond just making the top eight as they prepare to take on Cape Town City on Wednesday afternoon at FNB Stadium.

“We’ve got nine games left. We need to get ourselves up there into the top five. I believe we can – there’s no doubt about it. We need to start this Wednesday against Cape Town City. They are one of the best teams in the league, but we have to do the job,” said Hunt.

In their most recent league game, ‘Amakhosi’ drew 1-1 with – missing a chance to move to the top eight. Hunt’s men are on a decent run of form – five straight league games without tasting defeat and nine unbeaten matches across all competitions.

“We need to keep trying to build on the momentum. I think from where we were, we have come around a little bit. We can talk all day, but results are the bottom line,” concluded the Chiefs coach.
