thumbnail Hello,

The Clever Boys were drawn against AmaKhosi in the last four of this year Nedbank Cup, and Hunt is anticipating a tough encounter

Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has admitted that he's targetting another Nedbank Cup final after being drawn against holders Kaizer Chiefs in the semi-finals on Monday.

Hunt guided SuperSport United to two finals in the past two seasons - winning the 2012 edition and losing to Chiefs last year - but he believes that it will be tough to play Chiefs again this season, although he's banking on home advantage to get past the defending champions.

"I don't know if anybody has got to three (Nedbank) Cup finals in a row," Hunt told reporters. "Obviously that will for me be a personal ambition to get to another final, obviously with another team as well.

"But it's going to be tough. They will have a big crowd there, and obviously 99 per cent of the crowd will be theirs. So, it will be a tough one for us, but at least we will have home advantage," he said.

The former Moroka Swallows tactician added that the Students still have an outside chance of winning the league this season, but revealed that his team will be serious contenders next season.

"I didn't come here to come second. I am here to obviously try and win things, but I have said on record that we will be much stronger next year. The team is certainly getting in the right direction. I think we have gone 12 (games) unbeaten now. So, we just have to keep going," added Hunt.
