Kaizer Chiefs coach – Gavin Hunt has charged his players to better their performance as the Amakhosi takes on Orlando Pirates in the first leg of the MTN8 Cup semifinal on Saturday.

With three official games under his belt having taken over from Ernst Middendorf the coach is happy about his team’s performance, but thinks there’s still more room for improvement nonetheless:

“There were more signs of a proper team on Tuesday. We played some unbelievable football at times which was good to watch. Siyabonga Ngezana is a typical uncompromising defender.

“Obviously, he needs game time and as you know with center backs, they mature with age. He is coming along nicely.

Hunt will, however, not make predictions ahead of the epic clash but insist consistency is the key.

“Let us see how it goes, consistency is the most important thing in the game.

“We have a huge game on Saturday against Pirates.

“I am disappointed that we have not scored a goal from our strikers but let us win more games and collect points and get ourselves in the leaderboard.

“Anyone could have got a few goals but we will work on that. Team first and individual performances will follow.”
