The Amakhosi head coach believes that his charges should have won the game. Alas, Chiefs’ poor finishing is the reason for their defeat says Hunt.
“Ja, we played well, we should have won the game quite comfortably, what more do you want me to say? That’s it. I thought we did well,” Hunt told SuperSport TV after the match.
“The chances they cleared off the line, I don’t know how many they cleared off the line, so we did well you know. That’s it. I can’t fault the players.
“That’s pretty basic in football but you also have to defend better. I thought the second goal was poor from our side, there’s only one winner here, we should have won the game,” he said.
“But you’re chasing the game, the second goal goes in and it looks bad, but we had chances to even make it 2-2, so ja disappointing.
“There’s a lot of things I can’t say it, let’s talk football but we had more than enough chances. In the first-half we should have been 2-0, 3-0 , it’s the same as the cup game, Khama and Castro should have scored, we would have been 2-0 up before they even scored a goal, then it’s two away goals, it’s a different ball game and you end up losing,” he went on.
“It’s the same today, I mean the goal that we missed there I don’t know what happened, Castro, Nurkovic went through before they even looked like scoring. So that was disappointing from our side, but I knew we had to score first, and we didn’t,” Hunt added.
