Gavin Hunt has admitted that he has limited knowledge of SuperSport United's next opponent in the Caf Confederations Cup - Egyptian club ENPPI from Cairo

SuperSport United have travelled to Cairo in order to face ENPPI in the first leg of their Caf Confederations Cup round of 16 tie on Friday night.

Days before the match, Gavin Hunt admitted that he knew nothing about his next opponents, who defeated Kenyan club Gor Mahia 3-0 in order to set up a clash against SuperSport United.

The match is set to be played behind closed doors due to the ban placed on spectators in Egypt following spates of violence.

SuperSport will be without some key players such as Sibusiso Zuma, who did not travel to Cairo with the squad. Prince Hlela is also out of the tie with captain Thabo September out for the rest of the season due to an ankle injury.

ENPPI are currently in second position in the Egyptian league after nine games with 16 points. They trail perennial winners Al Ahly by two points.

SuperSport will need to be wary of ENPPI's Ahmed Omran. The attacking midfielder has already scored three goals in merely seven games this season. Striker Ahmed Raouf is also a force to be reckoned with after netting three goals in seven starts.
