Hunt Reacts To Defeat In Venda
Posted: 26 May 2021
Limpopo-based outfit Black Leopards FC boosted their survival hopes with a gutsy 2-1 victory against African Champions League semifinals Kaizer Chiefs this afternoon at the Thoyoyandau Stadium in Venda.
Chiefs, who took the lead in the opening exchanges, were unable to defend or add onto their lead, succumbing to yet another defeat in the DSTV Premiership.
The club’s Head Coach, Gavin Hunt reacts to the embarassing loss, saying;
“Yeah good start you know, we had a great chance to make it 2-0 and they had an opportunity just before half-time and they…you know scored from it. We have to defend better…we had a great opportunity at 1-1 where could’ve scored ad they had a chance and they scored (Leopards’second goal).
“They worked hard…they worked hard…you know, they did their best. We had good couple of opportunities and they had two… we’ve got to defend better there.
When asked if he is still optimistic in the remaining two games, he said;
“We’ve got two games left and we’ve got to keep going, we’ve got to keep going. We have to be ready in our next game, we have to be,” concluded an irritated Hunt.
Hunt’s side will next welcome high-flying Lamontville Golden Arrows at the FNB Stadium next Wednesday before wrapping up their horrific season when they travel to Mpumalanga to face Owen Da Gama’s unpredictable TS Galaxy FC on the fifth of June.
