Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes that his
side should have buried Kaizer Chiefs in the early stages of their Premiership
The Students ended the 90 minutes with a 2-1 victory at a packed Bidvest Stadium as South Africa’s top flight football kicked off.
Hunt’s charges opened the scoring through Elias Pelembe
following a swerving cross from Daine Klate in the first-half. Thulani
Hlatshwayo doubled the score in the second-half with a powerful header deepening
Chiefs defensive woes
However, a late Lorenzo Gordinho goal put Wits under
pressure in the dying minutes of the game but the university side held on for a
well deserved victory.
“To be fair, I thought we controlled the game and we could
have made it really safe,” said Hunt as quoted by Soccer Laduma.
“The last five minutes was not great, but we knew it was
going to come.
“Once they (Chiefs) got the goal they threw numbers forward,
but thankfully Moeneeb (Josephs) made that save at the end - it was the first
save he made the whole game.
“They (Chiefs) are a good side and they play good football,
but we did what we had to do and we move forward.”
