Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is still of the opinion that Kaizer Chiefs will win the 2019/20 Absa Premiership.

Hunt's side hindered Amakhosi's chances of their first league win since 2015 with a 1-0 win over Ernst Middendorp's team on Sunday.

They remain on top of the standings with two games to play though after Mamelodi Sundowns lost 1-0 to relegation threatened Baroka.

The two clubs are level on 53 points, with only Chiefs ahead on goal-difference.

While Middendorp's side must still play Chippa United and Baroka, Sundowns see their season out against Polokwane City and Black Leopards, ahead of their Nedbank final with Bloemfontein Celtic.

Hunt told the Sowetan: "It's very difficult these last three or four games but I'm sure they got enough experience.

"They have an experienced coach who knows how [to win], so let's see what happens. I wish him well."

Hunt added: "It is not easy to win the league, but the thing is consistency is very important we did well against Chiefs.

"When you come into this time of the year with three or four games to go, sometimes a point is not bad. People try to win games always, it is crazy what happens with players, coaches, and clubs.

"The pressure is immense and the club like Kaizer Chiefs who have not won the league for many years the pressure is even more. They are the club expected to win trophies."
