Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt reserved special praise for his defensive quartet following the club's Telkom Knockout success in KwaMashu on Saturday evening.

The Clever Boys were crowned League Cup champions for the first time in 22 years following a 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at the Princess Magogo Stadium.

Vincent Pule's 90th minute winner the difference between the two sides on the day as Hunt added yet another trophy to his ever-growing trophy cabinet.


It was the third TKO game in succession that Bidvest Wits won 1-0 with Darren Keet and the four stalwarts in front of him able to limit the Siwelele attack.

"I thought the first half we were good. We were on top," Hunt told SuperSport in he aftermath. "They were much better than us in the second half, they got on top us. They won a lot of second balls and I tried to make changes and be more positive."

"I thought let's try win the game, the space was there. In South African football one goal wins games, it's one of those things, I'm happy for the club and the boys.

"This is the first time we have had all our first team defenders. I thought they were magnificent besides the one slip at the end there.

"In South Africa you need a good defence because you can get one or two results. We haven't done it this season but we got a result tonight. It was going to take one moment you know," he concluded.
