Coach Gavin Hunt is concerned about Kaizer Chiefs’ home record as Amakhosi have registered only three wins this season and all those victories were achieved on the road.

Chiefs host struggling Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila at the FNB Stadium in Nasrec on Tuesday (17h00).

Amakhosi will go to the match against Vhadau Vha Damani following a 2-1 win over Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening.

Chiefs have won two back-to-back matches for the first time this season after beating AmaZulu 1-0 last Wednesday and Saturday’s win over the Citizens.

Hunt, the former Bidvest Wits and SuperSport United coach, has insisted that Amakhosi have not yet turned the corner despite moving into the top-eight on the Premiership table.

‘‘Not in football, not in South Africa. Anybody beats anybody, our home  record is a disaster, we play on Tuesday,’’ he said.

Hunt’s boys raced to a 2-0 lead before the 20th minute in the match against the Citizens. Nkosingiphile Ngcobo and Happy Mashiane scored for Amakhosi while Fagrie Lakay netted for the Citizens.

‘‘You can see we play in every two-three days. We had to dig deep once we got the two goals. It wasn’t pretty to watch, if you look at the bottom, people said lots of things, we had to keep going and get as many points as we can,’’ Hunt said.

‘‘Look, we got the foothold in the game nice and early, with two goals , which does help, especially away from home. Right now, in our situation we got to try to get as many points as we can.’’

Once again, Hunt played Daniel Cardoso in midfield and the former Free State player didn’t disappoint.

‘‘Daniel Cardoso was actually a striker, he ended up playing at the back. I think he has done very, very well,’’ said Hunt. 

‘‘We are playing every three days, playing Tuesday again, it’s crazy. We played on Wednesday and it was hot. We’ve gotta be more consistent.’’

Meanwhile, Hunt’s counterpart at the Citizens Jan Olde Riekerink believes that they were unlucky to lose the match.

‘‘I think we should have won this game. We had a big problem in getting to the rhythm of the game in the first 20 minutes. Second half we completely dominated the match, we created a few chances, had two big opportunities towards the end,’’ the Dutchman said.
