Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is refusing to get involved in any title talk, claiming his objective is to improve on last season's points haul.

Wits beat Sundowns 1-0 in Johannesburg on Monday evening to move above the Brazilians by one point at the top of the table.

But instead of conceding that the league title is very much on for his team, Hunt says his primary objective is to do better than last season - when his team finished a distant second to Sundowns - and to keep on bringing through players from the development ranks.

"Last year we came second by 14 points, and I said to them as long as we improve this year," said the three-time championship-winning coach.

"I've been here four years, we've improved every year and that's all we need to keep doing. Keep improving, keep producing young players from our academy, which we do all the time. 

"Our right-back (Reeve Frosler) has been outstanding, so that's what it's all about for me."

Hunt did give his players credit for the intensity which they showed against the CAF Champions League holders on Monday.

"I thought it was a good gutsy performance. It was like a Champions League game and that's what you want," he said.

With four matches to play, the Students have 51 points. Last season they ended with 57 points, while Downs won the championship with 71 points.
