The results comes after a disappointing 2-1 loss to Mpumalanga Black Aces just over a week ago.

The Wits mentor felt his side gave a better performance to that of the previous game.

“I said to the players that last week was an unacceptable loss, it was way below our standards and they gave a good performance on Friday night.”

Hunt felt his side was not playing their best football when playing at home, but Friday night was a different story after giving them a pep talk just before the match.

“I told them let’s start playing an away game and it was better for us. They (Polokwane City) are a good performing side and they hurt a lot of teams,” said Hunt.

Hunt went into the game with his sensational youngster Phakamani Mahlambi on the bench, opting not use him. And he brought in another youngster Paseka Sekese in place of Ellias Pelembe in the second half, adding that there will be many more Wits youngsters making their way into the senior team.

“Paseka should have had a hat-trick when he came on. But there are many more in the academy and I think they deserve a chance, but they will play very shortly,” he said.
