Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says he is determined not to set his players any targets for the remainder of the season, saying he prefers to "take it one game at a time".

The Students were tipped to challenge for the Premier Soccer League crown this term, but that dream already appears to be over after falling 14 points behind runaway leaders Kaizer Chiefs.

Wits could, however, lift themselves as high as second when they host Free State Stars on Saturday evening, with only three points separating them and the runners-up spot.

Hunt, though, is preferring to focus on the task at hand, telling this website: "We've never set ourselves any goals or targets so we haven't started thinking about resetting anything now that we've fallen 14-points behind leaders.

"We are happy with where we are. We will continue doing what we were doing, which is to take it one game at a time.

"We know what we are doing but we have obviously got to work on it more at the training ground and take that into the game.

"In football there's no magic stick and secret formula; otherwise everybody would be winning their matches. Everybody practices how they want to play and they take that into the game.

"So we just have to keep working hard on football, take what we train into the game and then we will be ok.

"Ahead of the game against Free State Stars, we will just have to work on how we want to play; hopefully we create chances to score goals and finish them off, and don't concede because the game is about goals.
