SuperSport United head coach, Gavin Hunt, has once again bemoaned the loss of the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville as the club’s home ground.

Matsatsantsa lost the venue last month after it stopped meeting the Premier Soccer League’s standards to host fixtures.

United enjoyed a healthy run of eight league wins and four draws at the venue this season.

Since the loss of the facility, United have been playing their home matches at the TUT Stadium in Tshwane.

Their match this weekend against Kaizer Chiefs will be played in the North West at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

“Very disappointing because we’ve had a lot of success at Lucas [Moripe], now you get kicked out there, I don’t even have a chair to sit on in the stadium. We need to do our best to try and get back that staying in one place cause we should have played Chiefs at Lucas on Saturday” said Hunt.

Three points will be vital for SuperSport who are chasing Orlando Pirates for second spot and that coveted place in next season’s CAF Champions League.

Pirates lead United by two points on the log standings with two matches remaining.
