We can't look for excuses, says Hunt

Cape Town - Having not won a single match since the start of the PSL campaign, Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt admits to being at fault as well.

The Students were outdone by AmaZulu in a 3-0 routing at King Zwelithini Stadium as they suffered their third defeat of the season.

"It's unbelievable, we can't concede three goals like this, and three goals in the last game (3-1 defeat to Golden Arrows),” said Hunt in his post-match interview on SuperSport TV.

"They are coming right through us from one or two passes from good attacking positions from us. It is something we have to work on, and now we are in a real dog fight, so we'll keep fighting."

Hunt believes that luck is not on their side but has urged his charges to keep on fighting. 

"No, no, no, no, you make your own luck. We can't look for excuses like that. I will never say that. The luck is gone, now we must just keep fighting," Hunt said.

"You have got to give AmaZulu a lot of credit, they won every second ball. We had good possession in good areas; again we just can't get that final touch. But you can’t concede three goals and expect to win games."

He added: "We are forced to make changes all the time, but that is no excuse. We have to be better, we should be better. A lot of players have to look at themselves and me as well. I need to look at myself as well; we are all included in this thing."

Meanwhile, Wits cancelled their press conference to be held on Friday via a statement released.

"Please be advised that the Bidvest Wits Press Conference which was planned for Friday, 22 September 2017 has been cancelled," read the statement.

The club is set to face Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday, September 23.

Kick off is at 18:00.
