Cape Town - Bidvest
Wits coach Gavin Hunt said he was absolutely delighted by what transpired
during the Premiership fixture against Ajax Cape Town.
frustrated by injury list
Wits handed a highly competent Ajax squad a 4-2 drubbing in
front of their home fans, which is a clear indication, if ever one was needed,
that his concerns about the team’s attacking prowess are being adequately
"We scored some good goals, played some good
stuff," Hunt said after the fixture.
The big news on the evening was that Wits moved to the
second position in the league standings, after Mamelodi Sundowns came unstuck
against Orlando Pirates in Soweto.
Hunt indicated that he was quietly confident about the
team’s prospects this season, especially after some of his tactical changes
yielded positive results this week.
"We tried to do what teams do to us at home. Everybody
sits off us, so we thought, well we'll sit off and we'll try and place in the
space a bit more," said Hunt.
"We tried to create a bit more space because we haven't
created enough when we play at home.
"I went the other way tonight, we dropped off and gave
them 10 or 15 metres and played differently. I thought it was much better.
"We let them have the ball. At home we've been
struggling because we've been going in and playing on the front foot. Even
Chiefs last week, they hurt us three times from three counters, so we dropped
off a couple of metres tonight to try and play a different way."
