Gavin Hunt defends Thulani Hlatshwayo

Gavin Hunt insists there was no malice in Thulani Hlatshwayo’s challenge that saw Sifiso Myeni stretchered off the field.
Bidvest Wits won the game 1-0 after Felipe Ovono let Daine Klate’s free-kick slip through his hands, but Hlatshwayo’s challenge midway through the first half was the big talking point.

It was later reported that Myeni had suffered a ‘soft fracture’ and was on his way to hospital, and Hunt wished the player all the best. 
“I haven’t seen the replay, but it looked like he caught the boy for the first red,” said Hunt, who also had Calvin Kadi sent off in the second half.
“There’s no malice intended in the challenges. I think it’s just a moment in the game.
“Tyson is a pillar of our team and we will miss him. He was honestly going for the ball, but Sifiso was just too quick for him. I hope that Sifiso is okay.”
Man of the Match Nazeer Allie also defended Hlatshwayo, saying: “Tyson’s challenge was just mistimed and it was unfortunate how it ended up with the card and injury.”
