Cape Town - Bidvest Wits attacker Daine Klate has identified his good relationship with coach Gavin Hunt as the reason for his superb form this season.

The veteran winger has been instrumental for the university club, netting five goals since his arrival at the beginning of the campaign.

Klate has been a key figure for Wits in their impressive run that has seen them surge to the summit of the Absa Premiership table with a record of eight wins and two draws in their opening 11 fixtures.

"The way the team valued, I have a big price. I have a big responsibility towards the team for them to value me like they did," Klate told KickOff.

"The atmosphere at the club is fantastic and I'm enjoying myself and my football. I've been asked the question on why I left Pirates, but it was time to move on and it's showing now that I'm enjoying my football again.

"If the coach shows that kind of faith, I can only repay him. He always says I need to score in every game because I get so many chances.

"He always says if I score 10 goals then we end up winning the league so it's good for me and I have five for the season contributing towards the team.

"The faith the coach has in me and expectations, it drives me a lot."
