Gavin Hunt planning Bidvest Wits overhaul as Nigeria trip looms

Gavin Hunt planning Bidvest Wits overhaul as Nigeria trip looms
From ESPN - April 16, 2018

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is intending to overhaul his squad at the conclusion of the PSL season and has revealed that the Clever Boys' resources are stretched as they attempt to battle on multiple fronts.

Wits are away at Nigerian heavyweights Enyimba in a CAF Confederation Cup Playoff Round second-leg tie on Wednesday, with the two sides having drawn 1-1 in Johannesburg in the first leg.

As well as their continental responsibilities, the reigning South African champions are also coming to the conclusion of a testing Absa Premiership campaign, having failed miserably in their title defence.

After winning the PSL title for the first time in their history, Wits have struggled to maintain their domestic momentum, and sit tenth on 32 points with four games to play.

"It has been a poor season for us," Hunt told journalists, as reported by the Independent. "We needed an overhaul [of the squad], we did not do it.

"We will do it now. We need a positive response in the remaining matches because people are playing for their careers."

In the meantime, Wits are focusing on salvaging their continental campaign.
