Having returned from Cameroon with a 1-0 win over PWD Bamenda in a CAF Champions League preliminary round first leg match on Sunday, Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt hopes that Amakhosi will have a good outing in the second leg on Friday.
Lanky defender Mulomowandau Mathoho scored the important goal, which Hunt hopes it will help encourage Chiefs going to the second leg scheduled for FNB Stadium in Nasrec.
‘‘I think it is important to try and score a few goals something we have been lacking. We have a couple of good strikers, but they haven’t scored goals and that is a problem,’’ said Hunt.
‘‘The most important thing is that we scored the away goal. We will come up against a strong and physical team. We hope to find it safer when we play in Johannesburg.
‘‘We won’t train with any intensity before the game on Friday. We will see who is available as we have a problem with one or two players.’’
Amakhosi have been goal shy and Hunt is relieved that they managed to score in Cameroon even though it was a defender, who netted for them.
‘‘He (Mathoho) scored a great goal like a striker could finish. He was a little bit rusty and hopefully with a few games he will be sharp. He’s got enough experience to help us,’’ the former Bidvest Wits, SuperSport United, Moroka Swallows, Black Leopards, Hellenic and Seven Stars coach said.
‘‘Everything about the game was difficult. We could have made the game safer as we had a lot of opportunities. Luckily, we scored the goal late.’’
