Gavin Hunt has won his first derby in 4 since taking over the reigns at Kaizer Chiefs in September 2020 on Sunday afternoon at the FNB stadium when the two Soweto giants played their 100th derby.
A sole goal from Samir Nurkovic in the second half of the game was enough to hand Hunt bragging rights over rivals, Orlando Pirates.
Kaizer Chiefs, who are also taking part in the CAF Champions league have been struggling to pick up maximum points in the DSTV Premiership league having won only 5 games out of 19 and drawing 8 leaving Amakhosi fans doubtful of both the team and the coach’s capabilities of continuing were Ernst Middendorp left off.
Kaizer Chiefs’ next game will be against Wydad AC in the CAF Champions league group stage on Saturday 3 April.
