Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes the pitch at the Princess Magogo Stadium is in poor condition ahead of Saturday's Telkom Knockout final against Bloemfontein Celtic.
The Clever Boys sent representatives to inspect the field on Monday at the 12 000-capacity venue in Durban, and from reports related back to Hunt, it is not in good nick.
Speaking to Sowetan Live, the 53-year-old said: "Shew‚ shew‚ shew. Listen‚ it is what it is. We've got to concentrate on the rules and play football.
"But it is a bit‚ it is a bit... you know. It threw everybody a curve ball‚ didn't it? It was like‚ 'Yuh‚ OK'.
"The pitch has been dug up last week because there were teams training on it in the rain. So the pitch is not great. We saw it - we went there yesterday to have a look at it. And it's normally a good surface.
"And if you get a blustery day the first half this‚ the second half this [Hunt indicated the wind blowing) hair forward and backwards. It's an open area. So please God the weather is good."
Champions Wits are rock-bottom of the league after a poor start to the season and a win in the TKO final will no doubt be a boost of confidence for Hunt's side.
