Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt has suggested that his side were good enough to at least earn a point against Cape Town City in Wednesday’s DStv Premiership clash at FNB Stadium.
Hunt felt his team were the better side on the day and created better opportunities to take all three points, but CT City defeated a wasteful ‘Amakhosi’ 2-1 thanks to goals by Tashreeq Morris and Surprise Ralani with Kearyn Baccus netting the consolation goal as Chiefs succumbed to a seventh league loss of the season to dent their top five hopes.
The defeat did not provide Chiefs with the confidence boost they were looking for, given they have a tough encounter against premiership leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in Pretoria on Sunday.
“The loss is the most disappointing thing, in the first half we were a little bit off, we had one or two good chances, we came back well and showed a lot of fight, very unfortunate not to get a draw,” said Hunt.
“I thought we deserved a draw. It did not come but you know we are on the back foot in the first half. It is disappointing.
“We’ve led games this year and we’ve thrown it away. We should have got a point, that is for sure. The final ball let us down. They also had chances but all-in-all we looked a bit heavy-legged. So, it wasn’t good.”
“Every game is important. From the start. So, it’s no different. We’ve got to regroup now and go again on Sunday. Lots of work to do.”
‘The Glamour Boys’ have dropped back to 11th place on the table‚ just 11 points away from bottom-placed Black Leopards with eight games remaining in what has been one of their most dreadful campaigns in the Premier Soccer League (PSL)era.
