Hunt happy as Supersport get back to winning ways

Supersport United got back to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over TS Galaxy at TUT Stadium.

Gavin Hunt’s side lost 1-0 to Orlando Pirates before the FIFA international break and drew 1-1 last week against Chippa United.

A goal inside five minutes from Siphesihle Ndlovu and a second from Brandley Grobler five mutes after the interval sent the home side to second spot in the DStv Premiership table.

“We played well tonight; I thought it was a good performance,” Hunt told Supersport TV after the match.

“Some good stuff around the box, we had three good penalty shouts – we don’t get penalties and it’s a bit disheartening. But I thought we played really well. Well deserved victory. The pitch was sticky and difficult to play on but we played well.

“Our identity is our intensity. When we don’t have intensity, we are not a good side. We had great intensity tonight and that is our identity, that is how we play.

“Grant Margeman and Siphesihle Ndlovu were magnificent. Even the boy upfront, Jones [Lungu], he was magnificent. Tyson [Thulani Hlatshwayo] is just getting better and better]. We’ve been a bit unfortunate for the last two weeks or so, but I mean, we will keep battling.”

Supersport United welcomed back Thatayaone Ditlhokwe from suspension and Hunt was pleased with the performance of his defenders.

“We have four strikers and no defenders and we need to get the balance right and that takes time and transfer windows. Any coach needs transfer windows so that we can mold the squad,” said Hunt.

“We’ve been struggling with centre backs; they are all on three yellow cards. One goes and the next one goes and then we mix-and-match every week. Jones played up front, he has played at right side in midfield, he has played left side. I think he has had played in four positions and maybe goalkeeper next week.”
