Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes his side has the best defence in the PSL while Mamelodi Sundowns have the best attack.

The Clever Boys are flying high in the Absa Premiership standings after the opening ten games of the campaign, having picked up 23 points to give themselves a three-point lead over second-placed Sundowns.

Despite seeing his own attacking quartet of Daine Klate, Elias Pelembe, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Phakamani Mahlambi perform at a high level this term, Hunt does not think they deserve to be considered the most lethal attack in the league.

Hunt also took the opportunity to dampen expectations after steering his side to the summit of the league table.

"Being top of the log doesn't mean anything after 10 games," Hunt told Times Live.

"If you can get 23 points during the next 10 and the 10 after that then you'll make it.

"We've been consistent and that's important but now there are no games because of the recess. Everybody is a contender because there are still 20 games to go.

"If you win things, if you win games, then you can say you have the best attacking quartet in the league. We needed to win the MTN8 and the Telkom Knockout and we didn't.

"Sundowns, for me, have got the best attack in the league. There's no doubt about it.

"We've got the best defence and there is no doubt about that. We lost 4-2 to them because they've got front players who can score at any minute."
