SuperSport United head coach Gavin Hunt expressed disappointment that his side couldn’t maintain their lead and win against Sekhukhune United in the DStv Premiership in Polokwane on Sunday evening.
United initially took the lead with Terrence Dzvukamanja’s goal, but Elias Mokwana equalized and Chibuike Ohizu scored the winning goal later in the match.
Despite this, Matsatsantsa are still in second place in the DStv Premiership log with 23 points, one point behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. However, Hunt’s team has played 12 matches, compared to Sundowns’ eight. United are also one point ahead of third-placed Cape Town City, who have played the same number of games.
Hunt believed that his team could have performed better and was disappointed that they didn’t create a larger gap between themselves and the teams behind them by winning both matches in Limpopo.
“Yeah disappointed we should have gone 2-0 up there, I mean Bradley missed on the goal line,” said Hunt.
“Should have been 2-0, 3-0 then the game would have been over and we could have managed it but we couldn’t, we had to chase.
“Then they get the first, the second was a big deflection, wasn’t it? And the ball ended up [in goal], how it ended up I still haven’t seen it.
“So yeah disappointing and then we chased it, we tried to chase it and then the game opens up and then they get a few breakaways.
“But yeah, we kept going and it’s disappointing because we could have opened up a gap and we should have won both these games, we could have won both games in Polokwane but it is what it is.
“You know we play three away, well we just play anywhere.”
