Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt was left fuming after seeing his side slump to a 3-1 defeat at the hands of stragglers AmaZulu on Tuesday night.

The Clever Boys were aiming to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat to Bloemfontein Celtic on Friday, but they once again produced a sub-par performance.

Goals from Mbulelo Mabizela, Goodman Dlamini and Bongi Ntuli fired Usuthu into a comfortable lead before Papy Faty netted a consolation goal for the visitors.

Hunt had precious few positives to take away from the performance of his side, telling KickOff: "We lost the game and we lost the fight, that's for sure.

“We lost every tackle and every header and every ball,” said Hunt.

“The first goal [from Mabizela], the centre-back didn't head the ball and nothing has been going for us in the last couple of games.”

"Every header they won; every tackle they won and every second ball they won and everything they won... they won the fight and it wasn't a football match for us."

Tuesday's result sees Wits slip down to fourth place in the Premiership standings, with Orlando Pirates moving up to second following their 2-0 victory over Chippa United.

They are now tied on 40 points with Sundowns and Pirates, although Pitso Mosimane's men will have the chance to claim second spot when they lock horns with Polokwane City on Wednesday evening.
