Wits Hunt for a striker


Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has confirmed the club will be looking to beef up their squad in the January transfer window with a striker being the main priority.

Hunt laments the lack of depth in his squad with the Clever Boys also competing in the Caf Confederations Cup and says he has informed the club’s management about his transfer plans in January.

“We have to and the club knows it we have to (sign new players in January], we can’t survive with just one striker or two, that’s been our problem upfront,” Hunt concedes.

“(Simon) Murray has been injured out for the season, we don’t have another striker.
“I’ve got a kid (Rowan Human) on the bench wasn’t the right game for him [against Golden Arrows].

“He’s a top goal scorer from the MDC you know, we need to just beef up all over the show you know we have to,” said the ex SuperSport United mentor.

Rowan Human has been on fire in the MDC.

Hunt though admits it will be difficult to sign new players for the club as SA clubs are not brave enough when it comes to transferring players.

“It’s very difficult because in South Africa people don’t want to do anything, people are scared to do things. I’m not scared and I’m  prepared to swap to trade to do things,” he says.

Wits take on Mamelodi Sundowns at Moses Mabhida Stadium in a League clash tonight.
