Hunt sings Wits players’ praises


Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has lavished praise on his players for their ‘fighting effort and commitment’ in the first five matches since the resumption of the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

Hunt’s men registered a 2-1 win over relegation-threatened AmaZulu in their Absa Premiership clash at the FNB Stadium on Friday afternoon.

Wits’ first league victory since the restart, after a run of three consecutive draws, saw them leapfrog Orlando Pirates and move into fourth place on the log standings.

“In these five games, I can’t fault these players, they have given me everything, said Hunt.

“We just haven’t had the quality in the front section of the team to take the chances and make the final pass and against AmaZulu we did that.

“The most important thing is the victory, we have been playing well, I mean this whole lockdown or this whole period back we have been playing really well but we haven’t been scoring, against AmaZulu we scored,” added Hunt.

“AmaZulu didn’t really threaten us, good effort again, fighting effort, the commitment was there, that’s the most important thing, I can’t ask for more. We play on Monday again… let us keep playing,” concluded the Wits mentor.

‘The Students’ were due to celebrate their 100th anniversary in 2021 but instead will cease to exist as Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) have completed the sale of the club with all its players.

Wits will tackle Maritzburg United in their next league encounter on Monday at the Tuks Stadium, 15:30.
