Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has heaped praise on winger Daine Klate after he inspired the Clever Boys to a 3-2 victory over Golden Arrows at the weekend.
With less than 10 minutes to go at BidVest Stadium on Saturday, Golden Arrows appeared to be heading for a 2-1 win.
Arrows' Namibian star Deon Hotto had broken the deadlock on 51 minutes before Phakamani Mahlambi restored parity on 72 minutes for Wits.
Arrows then responded quickly to the equaliser, reclaiming the lead just four minutes later through Mabhuti Khenyeza.
However, Klate levelled matters with a superbly struck free-kick in the 84th minute and popped up again just one minute later to net his second of the game.
Hunt has credited the former Orlando Pirates man for the dramatic, come-from-behind victory and even went so far as to suggest the attacker should have been playing in a striker's role "a long time ago".
"I've been saying all along about Klate, you win things with that boy," Hunt was quoted as saying by KickOff.
"He (Klate) has it, when he gets in those areas, he's a goalscorer. To be fair he should've playing up front a long time ago."
The result saw Wits hold on to their three-point advantage at the summit of the Premiership standings, and Hunt's men will now cast their attentions towards the crunch clash with Kaizer Chiefs at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, December 19.
Hunt added: "We would have lost games like these (against Arrows) in the last two years. We have a good balance now, we can go long and we can (go) short."
