Matsatsantsa clinched the win with a late goal courtesy of substitute, veteran striker Bradley Grobler, ending a streak of 10 matches without a victory in the league, dating back to December of last year. Although Grobler grabbed the all-important winner, the Man of the Match award went the way of fullback Lyle Lakay, who dedicated it to Gavin Hunt’s late father, Martin. Lakay stated in his post-match interview, “I would like to dedicate this award to the coach. I think everybody knows what happened, his father passed away.

Personally, I started with him 15 years ago, and I’ve never seen him that emotional and I’d like to dedicate this award to him.” The funeral is on Friday, which will be another tough day. This is something everyone faces, but it doesn’t make it any easier when it happens to you. Hunt mentioned, “He understood the game and wasn’t afraid to be critical.

He’d always point out my mistakes and jokingly ask when I’d get a real job! He knew his football, and perhaps that’s why I made some changes against Royal AM. We hadn’t won since he fell ill, and he’d been offering advice for those four weeks.” Gavin John Hunt shared on Twitter following his father’s passing: “Rest in Peace dad, you waited for me today to come and see you.

Love you.” He also expressed gratitude for the support he received, thanking everyone for the messages and calls during a difficult time. Reflecting on the emotional context, a message was sent acknowledging the significance of the 3 points in light of the challenging week.
