Cape Town - Wits head coach Gavin Hunt admits that he is
beginning to feel the heat as the Absa Premiership champions occupy 16th place.
The Students crashed to a 1-0 defeat
against Free State Stars on Friday and are struggling to find form in this
"Of course, we are worried," the
beleaguered Hunt was quoted by KickOff on Monday.
"We are upset. We are anxious. We want
to get away. We know we are better than this. We need to win games by hook or
crook," said Hunt.
"We need to get a few wins or a win.
Four games here in a row and we have not scored a goal and every game we should
have won by plenty of goals.
“But we need to score and they scored from
a corner kick. That's football but we need to score.
"Games like this last year we should
have won 5-1 but we are not. You can't miss the chances we are missing."
Wits, who were crowned Telkom Knockout
champions in December, last won a league game in October when they beat Baroka FC
at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
At the time, it was their second win in
three league games and it looked like they were finally putting their troubled
start to the campaign behind them.
Unfortunately, the season has gone from bad
to worse for the champions, and their main priority now will be trying to stay
in the league, rather than reclaiming their title.
