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
“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.
