“For me it has always been the other way around, playing in front of 500 supporters and against 50‚000 [at Hunt’s previous clubs]. Nobody saw this coming but we do miss the supporters greatly.”
In their last five league matches‚ where they have won three and drawn two‚ Chiefs have only conceded two goals. Hunt put that down to getting combinations right and players understanding each other.
“Any time you go to a new club‚ you want to work on that area of the pitch. Obviously we weren’t good in the beginning but it’s all about combinations and understanding.
“I don’t think we are anywhere near the final product but it’s an ongoing process that we need to keep on working on. It is cutting out and eradicating mistakes‚ playing people where they are comfortable and where it suits them.”
Over the last few matches against AmaZulu‚ Cape Town City‚ Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila‚ Stellenbosch and Baroka‚ Hunt has used Daniel Cardoso in the midfield in the absence of Willard Katsande.
