Kaizer Chiefs will be returning to domestic action for the first time in over two weeks and coach Gavin Hunt has given a clear indication of their situation. Chiefs’ indifferent form this season has seen them win just eight of their 28 games across all competitions, including their latest match in the CAF Champions League against Petro de Luanda.
With a DStv Premiership encounter away to Maritzburg United scheduled for Wednesday evening, Amakhosi fans will be waiting to see if their latest victory could come as a turning point.
Hunt, who managed to avoid an unwanted record of nine games winless at the weekend, has admitted to the dire situation the club faces but stressed the need for unity and belief.
“You know I can’t answer honestly [around the team’s form]… We’re going through tough times, we’re sticking together and it hasn’t been easy but it is what it is. I know the reasons why, but so be it. We’ve got to stick together and we’ve all got to have belief, and we’ve got to show it, even in the defeats,” said Hunt.
“We’ve gone right to the end, even when we’ve drawn – the ones we’ve thrown away this season, when leading 1-0 and thrown away the games. But a lot of things have happened on the field, but ja… We’ve just got to stick together and keep going until the end,” he added.
