So far, SuperSport are on the right track to reach the magical figure. They managed to collect 22 points in 10 games and should they continue to their current form, Hunt might have to honour his promise before the end of the season next year.

The former Kaizer Chiefs coach said the focus was to improve from last season

“You don’t worry about that (league position), with what we’ve got and what we are achieving is good but we are limping,” Hunt said as per Citizen.

“We have so many players out and again we have lost three left-backs now. I enjoyed the result because it is away from home but I didn’t enjoy the performance because it’s unlike us to concede goals like that,” Hunt added.
