Hunt lashes out after draw

Pretoria - Clearly disappointed by his team's lacklustre performance on Tuesday night, SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt says he will not accept excuses from his players as they target a top-four league finish.

The hosts played to a goalless draw against Maritzburg United in their Absa Premiership encounter in Atteridgeville.

"We were blunt up front. We made the wrong decisions but we still had enough chances," Hunt said.

"We can't look for excuses, there's no excuses, these players are professionals. Anybody who has excuses won't play."

Matsatsantsa, in fifth position, climbed within one point of Wits after stretching their unbeaten run to eight straight league matches.

And despite watching his side play to their 15th stalemate in 25 games, Hunt believed fourth place in the standings was still within their reach.

SuperSport, out of touch of the top three teams in the table - Kaizer Chiefs, Platinum Stars and Orlando Pirates - held a game in hand over most outfits, due to their ongoing Caf Confederation Cup commitments.

"We're right there. There will still be some big results," Hunt said.

"We should have won. We had enough chances to win, but the final ball let us down and we lacked a little bit of sharpness.

"It's not over yet. We've got five games left, so we've got a long way to go.

"There'll be a lot of upset results and we'll see."

Maritzburg, unbeaten in their last five league matches, remained in sixth position on the log, one point behind Hunt's outfit.
