Chiefs tipped to win

By Marc Strydom | Nov 12, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 187 ]

IT'S only the one-third stage of the season, but SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt believes Kaizer Chiefs have what it takes to win this season's Premiership.

Speaking after Amakhosi's impressive 2-1 victory over SuperSport in Polokwane on Saturday night, Hunt said Chiefs have the look of champions about them.

"They should win the league now - nobody will catch them," Hunt said. "I don't think any of the teams below them are showing any type of form."

Chiefs were under pressure against SuperSport, with second-placed Orlando Pirates having beaten Free State Stars in an earlier game. But Amakhosi pulled out all the stops to break down a well-organised Matsatsantsa and preserve their four-point lead.

Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter echoed Hunt's words and said: "We're top of the log, and we've got to live with that. It's always easier to be the hunter than the hunted.

"We've got to keep telling people that we're not going to buckle. And if they want to take over top of the log then they're going to have to play for it," Baxter said.

"It was a tough, gutsy second half, in terms of the storm in the first half, in terms of the opponent being good, in terms of my players knowing the results before the game. SuperSport are the best team we've played," he added.

A brace from striker Lehlohonolo Majoro provided the spearhead of an impressive team effort from Chiefs. Their creativity on the ball has been their hallmark under former Bafana coach Baxter.

It was Amakhosi's second win in a row after they beat Golden Arrows 3-0. Chiefs are now the only unbeaten team remaining in the PSL, having ended SuperSport's run on Saturday night.

"Baxter has been able to get goals from all his strikers so far this season. We also work very hard with the strikers," Hunt said.

SuperSport came into the game with eight draws from their first nine games. Hunt said media hype has affected some of his players.

"It's a problem and I've got to handle it. The gap is too big now (to win the league). We've just got to soldier on," Hunt said.

to me Supper Sport United lost becouse of their careless mistakes at the back.
=========================================

Its about time Mamparas like you learn football. Dont you know that in football when you make mistake you will be punished. The reason why you make mistake is because you are under pressure. How many goals have your team scored as a results of mistakes? Have you ever said Pirates won because the opponets have so many mistakes? Give credit where it is due and stop talking nonsense
===============================================
My friend SHAKA ENTLIK u should ask this Mampara UKUTHI how mant times they have scored bcause of mistakes by the referi.

King4joy do U really know soccer MARA, Do U know how many people have lost their lifes bcause of mistakes. SO MINA I SAY 2 U MISTAKES R part nd parcel of life.

Then give credit where it's due. Capitalising on mistakes is part of the game.
====================================================
Capitalising is like taking chances when defenders R sleepng jusk like Piecity nd Celtic game.

Dumelang di champ kaofela, what a weekend we had. there is still a long way ahead of us. we have done it before, I mean playing 17 games without a single loss, but we did not win the league or any cup. so history is repeating itself here. Zebras have lost all their cup games and they are still unbeaten in the league, this is not new.
*********************
Thanks my champ, people have selective memories. You can also include Sunflops here...
====================================
Sure my DTC, my champ we have only played a third of the league, we still have two thirds to go, I don't understand what this Zebras and Hunt are on about. they must just chill, we have not even reached a half mark. jerrrrrrrr
