We should never have lost this game.," said Gavin Hunt after the game.

Chippa United head coach Gavin Hunt felt the loss to the Orlando Pirates was a game they should never have lost.'

Phakamani Mahlambi got the Chilli Boys started in the 11th minute, but the Buccaneers responded in the first half with Tshegofatso Mabasa before Abel Mabaso and Goodman Mosele sealed the victory.

"The scoreline reads 3-1, but I think it's a little unfair." "I think we had the best chances," Hunt said after the game to SuperSport.

"We could have gone up 3-1 on our own." So disappointing, but obviously once we had to chase it, we were going to run into some issues, but overall, I thought we had the best chance. We had numerous opportunities to win the game.

"We must improve our defensive performance if we hope to win. It's an old football saying. To begin, you must defend. Two games in a row, in my opinion, that the Red Sox should never have lost.

"It's time for the national pastime of American football. Nobody gives a fig about it. We must make an effort to recover. We had a plethora of opportunities to win today's game.

Hunt was also questioned regarding the fitness of some players and disclosed that Mahlambi was not scheduled to play from the outset.

"Because we were short on options, I had no choice but to start Phakamani despite his health. He should have added a second goal, and even after they scored, he should have simply put the ball to Hana so that we could score. Then, after halftime, he had the chance to make it two.
