Hunt: We make life difficult

Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt was less than satisfied with his team's performance after they scraped through to the Last 16 of the Nedbank Cup on Friday evening.

James Keene's 25th-minute strike proved to be enough as Wits secured their place in the draw for the Last 16 with a 1-0 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic at Bidvest Stadium.

Despite securing the win, Hunt was unhappy with his side's wastefulness in front of goal.

"We make life difficult," Hunt told SuperSport in his post-match interview.

"Every game it's the same story. We had some really good opportunities.

"We weren't at our best tonight, that's for sure, but we had numerous opportunities throughout the game but we didn't take our chances."

However, Hunt did have words of praise for goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs, who pulled off an impressive save in the second half to keep Celtic at bay.

Hunt added: "At least Moeneeb did something tonight; he did nothing before that, did he? So that's why he gets paid!"
