Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt is not in a good place right now after being soundly beaten in the last five outings.

To add insult to injury. their last defeat was the Soweto Derby against Orlando Pirates who beat them 2-0 in the MTN8 semi-final second leg game at the FNB Stadium.

A week before, the Chiefs were embarrassed by the Bucs who beat them 3-0. The last match they won against Chippa United, thanks to an own goal, was not much of a win.

Hunt told Supersport TV after the painful encounter that the Pirates' new signings have shown a great deal of promise.

In other news, Kaizer Chiefs were dealt a difficult hand after the draws for the CAF Champions League took place in Cairo on Monday 9 November. The club will have to face Cameroon Premiership Champions PWD Bamenda in the first round.

If Chiefs manage to defeat the Cameroon defending champions, they'll be up against Angolan giants, Premiero De Agosto. The Soweto giants are not even in the top ten of the South African Premier Division Standings at the moment.

Sitting at 11th with 4 points, Amakhosi surely has to work hard to regain a top position.
