Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt admitted for the first time this season that they are all embarrassed by their dramatic turn of events in the last 18 months.

“We’ve got to take heed of the situation, there’s no doubt about it. A lot of us are embarrassed coming from where we were to where we are now,” Hunt told the media post-match.

Robert Ng'ambi’s first half goal was enough to take Dikwena closer to safety at the half stage of the season, leaving the Students at the bottom of the log.

“It’s a disappointment being so far down the table. The chances we are missing... crazy isn’t it? They didn’t have one chance tonight, not one. I’m talking from open play,” Hunt said.

With 14 games played, the Clever Boys find themselves rooted at the foot of the table, with only two wins to their name so far.

“When you’re top of the log, you’re worried. When you’re bottom of the log, you’re worried. So, we’re worried but I mean, we can’t play with fear. People go on about this and that but I mean, we’re creating opportunities. From the first game this season where we lost 1-0 to Cape Town City, the score could have been anything,” Hunt said.

“Everybody says ‘turnaround’ yeah, of course, you’re going to say that. To be fair, the fight in the team is good. We’re fighting. We’ve played three games now and the three teams have had two chances against us in three games,” Hunt added.
