Wits kept their top-three ambitions alive as they secured a
2-1 win over newly-crowned Premiership champions Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB
According to KickOff, Hunt has credited his younger players
after he promoted eight players from The Students youth setup.
“We’ve played like this all season, but we’ve missed those
opportunities all along. There was another one where Jabu Shongwe should have
scored,” Hunt said.
“But the most important thing is that we brought the most
kids on this year; eight kids from the Under-19s. There is no other team in
South Africa who has done that.
“We are lying fourth in the League and all these kids played
their part during the year. When you produce eight kids in a year and still
come fourth … I’m very happy.”
