Hunt on CAF CONFED chances


Bidvest Wits have had a rocky start in the CAF Confederations Cup this season dropping five points in their first two fixtures.  

But coach Gavin Hunt believes his side still have a very good chance of going all the way to the knockout stages and eventually win the Cup.  

Hunt has a good pedigree when it comes to hunting silverware and one wouldn’t take for granted his ability to go all the way and achieve the milestone. 

The 4-times Absa Premiership winning coach does admit though that dynamics surrounding the continental competition will prove to be the biggest challenge to his squad.  

“I think it’s the getting to the games which is the biggest problem in Africa. I don’t think the games itself are the problem you know obviously who you playing where you playing you know” He said.  

“We went to Mali, it’s in the middle of the desert there ,if you go to Egypt and place like that Tunisia and Algeria pitches are nice you can play there, they play at night ,where we go in Mali they play in the day time, so it all depends on who you play it’s not the games itself it’s just the actual all the aggravation, I mean 22 hours come on ,it takes us to get there and back “ explained Hunt. 

The Students are in Group C alongside Djoliba, Al-Naser and Horoya who currently top the standings after 2 matches being played.  

They will play host to bottom of the table Side, Al-Naser on Sunday at Dobsonville Stadium at 18:00.
