Hunt said in a post-match interview that he was satisfied with his team's performance after having to make a 7-hour journey to Thohoyandou twice in a week.
"I thought we had them where we wanted them," Hunt said. "It's very difficult to come and play here especially being here twice in a couple of days.
"As I said we've got hardworking honest players and we've got a good team. We don't have that little bit of flair in the final third but if we play to our strengths we'll be okay."
