The Matsatsantsa coach believes that his players have the ability to earn themselves a place in the final of the South African cup competition

SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt says he has a lot of faith in his players to win their first knockout title since 2005.

United host AmaZulu in the Nedbank Cup semi-finals at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday and while Hunt admits his side's chances of winning the League title are very slim, he says they must put more efforts into winning the Nedbank Cup.

The last time United won the Cup Final was in 2005 when they won the Top Eight and the Absa Cups, but Hunt is convinced that he has the right squad to win this time around.

"We have shown good form this season, I think we've done exceptionally well under very difficult circumstances. It's a great opportunity for us, we are still not out of it in the League but this is a different competition. Our focus has to change a little bit but we are looking forward to the game I'm sure the players are keen to get a result," he said.

However, Hunt is worried about Usuthu's form away this season having beaten them already away this year.

"They got the best away record in the League I think. They are very good away, they have not conceded many goals, they have done well this season away and all credits to Roger Palmgren and his team and we have to look at that," he added.
