Gavin Hunt identifies SuperSport United's Achilles heel ahead of Kaizer Chiefs

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt says their Achilles heel, having now managed just one win in 10 matches, is scoring.

Matsatsantsa suffered a major blow in their race to finish runners up in the DStv Premiership following a 2-0 defeat at home against Chippa United on Saturday night.

They next face a struggling Kaizer Chiefs this weekend, with Hunt identifying their biggest weakness in this poor run.  

"Yeah, we will worry about that this week and we're gonna just try and get a team together and try to get settled a bit more but you can go to training and we can work on things but the bottom line is you've gotta score, there are big chances and we don't score," Hunt said.

Hunt’s view is that the score line against the Chilli Boys, which led to them sliding down to fifth place, was not a true reflection of the game.

"I thought it was a dominant performance, I mean the score line doesn't tell you the true picture but hey. You've gotta take your chances when you get them and we had some really big chances. I don't think they had, they must have had one or two, three, I mean we had some big chances. We could have scored a few but hey we lost, so we take it on the chin," Hunt added.

The four-times league winner also felt their busy schedule over the last few weeks could have caught up with them against a Chippa team that relies on strength and power.

"They're a physically big strong side, so, yeah, I'm not happy with the result especially. It's our third game in six, seven days so, we weren't flat at all, we were the better side, come on, we played the football."
