Johannesburg - After playing to the 14th draw of their league campaign, SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt was left in no doubt his side delivered their worst performance of the season against Wits at Bidvest Stadium in their Absa Premiership match on Tuesday.

Searching for their third win on the trot in the league, Hunt's men slipped up with their play which left the coach frustrated on the sidelines.

"It was poor from both sides," said Hunt after the game.

"I thought our passing and ball retention and creating absolute chances was poor. For me it was our worst performance this season, but we battle on.

"Tonight [Tuesday] we never looked too threatening at all."

Hunt said he was short of players in certain areas, which hindered the performance.

"We're lacking one or two players to give us a little bit of creativity here and there, which we don't have. So we've got a team of battlers and we battle on."

Despite a torrential downpour in the second period, Hunt said it could not be used as an excuse for the low quality of the game.

"Both teams struggled, didn't they? The ball was skipping and sliding away and the passing wasn't accurate enough and precise enough.

"It was tough, but the pitch was beautiful. When I played we played in the townships on dust. This is like Wembley here, so we should be better."

SuperSport created few chances in attack, but neither did the Students, and a draw was a fair reflection of the game according to Hunt.

"How many saves did my goalkeeper make? Did he make any saves? He didn't make a save.

"They pass, pass in front of you and play with an extra midfield player. A couple of breakouts here and there, but nothing that the goalkeeper really had to make a save from. I thought they were a little bit better than us, that's for sure.

"We were poor. We have to hold our hands up, but we got through with a big heart. We just lacked the quality in the passing, but we also missed one or two [chances]."
