Frustrated Hunt bemoans Stars hoodoo

Cape Town - Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt admits he can't understand how his side simply cannot find a win against Free State Stars, as they prepare for battle on Saturday.

After an impressive start to the season that saw Hunt's side labelled as early title favorites, the Students' form has wavered somewhat, with two draws and two losses in their last four league games.

Despite not winning their last four games, Wits remain only three points behind first-placed Cape Town City, with two games in hand.

But as they prepare for their next game, Hunt concedes he's feeling the pressure.

Giovanni Solinas' side knocked The Clever Boys out of the Telkom Knock Out Cup this season with a 3-1 victory, and in their last ten meetings, Wits have only come out on top on two occasions.

Five of those ten fixtures have ended goalless and Hunt says he has no idea how his side fails to find the back of the net against the Bethlehem-based outfit.

"Last season [we didn't beat them], and I can go back to the 1980s. What else do you want to know? I think you guys weren't born then. [Perhaps] let's change the muti man, try something else, play different players, I don't know," he told reporters.

"You tell me [why we can't beat them], I don't know! We have 45 chances every game, what do you want me to do? We don't score, you saw what happened [against Golden Arrows].

"What do you want me to do? Are they [Stars] our hoodoo team? Every team is our hoodoo team."
