'We Owe Chiefs One' - Gavin Hunt 15/05/03
In his column this week on the club's official website, coach Gavin Hunt discusses the victory over Jomo Cosmos, as well as the upcoming match against Kazier Chiefs and, finally, he has special praise for one youngster.

The three points gained against Jomo Cosmos on Wednesday night have kept us in the frame for the Premier Soccer League title.

I thought it was a great team performance after we had given away a silly goal early on. As I have said before, the defence has been a worry for us in the past six weeks or so and it is something we continue to work on.

But after that, I thought we showed a lot of character and in the end it was a deserved victory for the lads on the night. One young man who deserved special mention is Japie Motale who was playing his first game for us last night. I thought he did extremely well and look composed on the ball.

We are now just six points behind Orlando Pirates but have to rely on them losing their final two matches of the season.

I have told the boys we cannot worry about what they are doing and must just get on with it. We must keep going and can't let ourselves down at this stage of the season with just two games left.

Even if we don't win the title there is still the prize of second place and an invitation to play in the African Champions League, which would be brilliant for the club.   

Standing in our way of that are Kaizer Chiefs, who we play next on Sunday. The Amakhosi have beaten us twice already this season, 1-0 in the Coca-Cola Cup and 4-2 in the league, so we owe them one.

I told the boys we have to remain positive and believe we can beat them. I don't see any reason why we can't.

I will have to do without goalkeeper Greg Etafia for that game which is a big blow for me, but Peter Peterson comes back into the running, which is good news.

The spirit in the camp is great at the moment and with the tremendous support of the fans, who knows what we can achieve?

Until next time,

Do you agree with Gavin? Can swallows win the title? to the Editor......
