  • Kaizer Chiefs suffered an embarrassing 3-0 defeat in their opening DStv Premiership clash against rivals Mamelodi Sundowns.
  • Coach Gavin Hunt believes that Amakhosi's next fixture against Chippa United will be a different challenge.
  • The Glamour Boys will take on the Chilli Boys on Tuesday.


Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt says their upcoming match against Chippa United will be a different challenge compared to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The Brazilians eased to a 3-0 victory at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the opening DStv Premiership clash of the season.

Newly-signed strikers Peter Shalulile and Kermit Erasmus scored their first goals for Masandawana, while 2019/20 Footballer of the Season Themba Zwane sealed the victory from the penalty spot.

Speaking to club's official website on Sunday, Hunt admitted that his Amakhosi charges committed crucial mistakes and he hoped they will get it right against the Chilli Boys.

"We committed crucial mistakes against a quality side. They were a stronger opposition," Hunt said.

"Obviously with more games' intelligence, we will improve. It is not the results we were looking for but now we have to focus on the next opposition.

"I watched Chippa in their match on Saturday night... Chippa is totally a different side compared to Sundowns. They will be a different challenge," he added.

"To me, there is no first game. I read a lot from any game. We have lots of work to do going forward. But don't forget we played against the best team in the league in Sundowns."

The Glamour Boys are back in action on Tuesday against Chippa as the Premiership resumes.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
