Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt claims he is indifferent to Kaizer Chiefs' form and prefers to focus on his own team's performances.

Speaking after Chiefs suffered a surprise 2-0 loss to SuperSport United earlier this week, Amakhozi's first defeat of the season, Hunt insists he only cares about Wits' results.

"People are speaking about Chiefs dropping points, we are focusing on ourselves," said Hunt, whose side climbed to second in the standings following Tuesday's 2-0 win over Moroka Swallows.

The Students have won all three of their games this year in all competitions and trail Chiefs by 10 points in the Premiership with 10 games of the season left to play.

However, the immediate priority for Hunt's team is the Nedbank Cup game against Free State Stars on Saturday, according to the coach.

"Our priority is our next game against Free State Stars," he said.

"I've been in the Nedbank Cup final for the past three years and I've only won one.

"It's important to stay in the Nedbank Cup in case we don't win the Absa Premiership."
