Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has heaped praise on his players for their consistency throughout the season, and hopes they continue to push in the final stretch.

The Clever boys are enjoying one of their best Premiership campaigns, as they remain within four points of league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns with just six games left to play, and are through to the semi-finals of the Nedbank Cup against Free State Stars next week.

Hunt, who won three consecutive league titles with SuperSport United, says credit must go to his players for continuing to show hunger and desire to achieve more.

"Through the course of the season, if you can win games like this, you have to give credit to the players. The most important thing for us is to just keep going," Hunt told his club's official website.

"With the squad of players that we have, we are overachieving. We have got hunger and desire and the players want it badly, and that is the most important thing. At the end of the day it is, however, about three points," he concluded.

The Students hosts Ea Lla Koto at Bidvest Stadium for their league clash on Saturday night, before they travel away to face the same Free State side in the Ke Yona semi-finals at Goble Park on 23 April.
