Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt admits that his side didn’t make the most of their chance against Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday.

The Clever Boys failed to progress to the Nedbank Cup final after suffering a 3-2 defeat to Sundowns in the quarter-finals at Orlando Stadium.

Hunt insists that the Students are now turn their attention to their upcoming Absa Premiership clash against Kaizer Chiefs at the same venue on Wednesday, with kick-off set for 6pm.

‘That’s our life and story at the moment, it’s our lives at Bidvest Wits at the moment. So, yeah we’ll pick ourselves up, try and go again on Wednesday,’ Hunt told the media.

‘Look, I can’t get involved in that debate [on whether Mhlongo is to blame for the third goal or not], those are bad mistakes, in the two last goals in my point of view…the first goal as well.

‘You know you really have to question some of the decisions but that’s football and that the way our life at Bidvest Wits is at the moment, you know and I feel for the players.

‘As I said they don’t deserve it but we lost to a better team. We had them, we wanted them, but we didn’t take advantage of the situation.

‘You can’t concede goals like that, certainly all three of them. But I’m not going to finger any blame here.’
