Gavin Hunt remains determined to win the Absa Premiership despite small Bidvest Wits squad


Wits were knocked out of the TKO by Maritzburg United last Friday after losing 3-1 on penalties following a 101 draw, and will now shift their focus to the Absa Premiership and Nedbank Cup.

Hunt, whose side were also knocked out of the MTN8 earlier this season, says having a small squad makes things difficult for them to compete with the bigger clubs in all the competitions.

"I bought one player, so we are fighting way above our weight. We are doing very, very well with the players we've got, 21 players. Everybody else has 35 players," Hunt said.

"It's not about struggling financially, the policy was not to buy any players. So that was the policy this season. Right now we are second in the league with two games in hand and should go top."

The Clever Boys mentor, who has brought silverware to the club, is targeting the big one again after missing out last season due to their inconsistent home performances.

"Of course I'm not impressed because I want to win. I was brought to the club to win and I've won every trophy since I've been here. So I want to win the league. I want to win every trophy. Every coach is the same, we just need ammunition."
