Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt was once again at a loss to explain his side's wastefulness in front of goal following Saturday's 2-2 draw against Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The Students twice found themselves trailing at the Bidvest Stadium before eventually rescuing a point, which did little to aid their top-three ambitions as they find themselves fourth in the Premiership standings, two points adrift of Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in joint second, although the latter have a game in hand over both.

And, speaking after a match in which Hunt claims even "Stevie Wonder could have scored", the coach said: "Bit of a stuck record, but it was the same story whole season, that's why we are third or fourth and not near the top of the League table.

"It could have been five or six. What else can you do? Look, it's one of those things, we should never have drawn this game, but it's been the same story all season.

"What else am I going to say, we have to shake things up a little bit and try different things, change the shape maybe. I said to the players at half-time, what else are we going to do?

"But we've got to keep going, keep doing the right things. I mean some of those chances today Stevie Wonder could have scored."
