Kaizer Chiefs head coach Gavin Hunt admits
his team needs more bite in the final third after a narrow win over PWD Bamenda
in the CAF Champions League on Sunday.

The first leg of the preliminary round tie
finished 1-0 to Amakhosi thanks to a goal from defender Erick Mathoho.

Hunt was pleased with the win but pointed
out that his side appears to lack clinical finishing.

The Soweto giants have scored only three
goals in five Dstv Premiership games this season.

“I think it’s important to try and
score a few goals, and I think that’s something we are lacking a cutting
edge,” Hunt told the media after the win in Limbe, Cameroon.

“You know we have a couple of good
strikers, but they haven’t scored and that’s a problem.

“The final pass wasn’t as good as it
should be at the end of the movement. But the pitch had a lot to do with that,
I thought the pitch was very difficult to play on.”

He added: “Most importantly, we scored
an away goal. But we can’t relax, its only half time.

“So, we have still got another whole
game to go – they’ve got a lot of fight in their team. A strong physical team.

“But hopefully we will have enough to
try and make it a bit easier and safer when we play in Johannesburg.”
