SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt has revealed his ambitions of returning to CAF inter-club competitions for the 2024/25 season.

Hunt’s charges will get to play in the CAF preliminary stages should they finish second or third on the DSTV Premiership log standings or win the Nedbank Cup.

Matsatsantsa a Pitori are third on the log, having accumulated 33 points after 20 matches.

“I think qualifying for Caf again because right now we still have two avenues in qualifying for the competitions. Again, qualifying for Caf will be a great achievement but we will take it one game at a time.

“You can’t put all your eggs in one basket and say we’re going to go this route because you will end up winning nothing. Let’s just try and concentrate because we’ve got three League games before the Stellenbosch FC game,” Hunt told the media.

SuperSport are yet to win in three league games this year. Three consecutive 1-1 stalemates have seen them lag by 13 points behind runaway leaders Mamelodi Sundowns in the title race.

The Nedbank Cup represents SuperSport’s only realistic chance of continental football ahead of next season. They have been drawn against Stellenbosch FC in the quarter-finals of the Ke Yona.

Hunt says they have been handed tough fixtures ahead of this quarterfinal encounter.

“I think we have been doing well too and it will be a very big competitive game. We’ve had tough draws in this Nedbank Cup.

“We had Cape Town City who are a top three side and we played Richards Bay away who are fighting for their lives. So now we have Stellenbosch away and it won’t be easy.

“We had an easy draw last year and we stuffed that up. Maybe a hard draw is good for us but we have a couple of games before then. We play about three or four games so we will worry when we get there but it will be a tough game for both sides,” Hunt added.
