Cape Town - Wits coach Gavin Hunt admitted he didn't want to "say
too much" about the match officials following a number of questionable
decisions in the 2-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs.
The league leaders held their own in the first half, doing
well to frustrate the visiting Amakhosi as the two teams went into the interval
with the scores locked at 0-0.
However, Chiefs went on to score two goals in the second
stanza before Robyn Johannes received his marching orders after picking up a
second yellow card for dissent.
Wits' players were incensed by referee Victor Gomes'
decision, aggressively surrounding him at the final whistle.
All of this prompted Hunt to intervene at the final whistle
as the situation threatened to deteriorate further.
Hunt was clearly unhappy with the manner in which the match
ended and, of course, the referee’s performance, but he refused to directly
criticise the match officiating.
"There's not really much to say. I don't want to say
too much. It's very disappointing the way the situation was handled," Hunt
told Supersport TV after the match.
"It is what it is. We knew when we came to the game
what it was going to be like, what it was going to entail.
"So, there's not really much to say. I don't really
want to say too much. I don't want to talk about anything because I might just
say something I shouldn't say."
The result sees Wits remain at the top of the pile, although
they now hold just a two-point lead over second-placed Orlando Pirates, who
defeated Chippa United 4-2 on Tuesday evening.
