"We are happy to be in the race for the title. That's important for us," Hunt told Goal.
On Wednesday, the Clever Boys will be away to Free State Stars, who have a good home record against Hunt's side.
"We know it's obviously going to be a difficult game, but we are ready for the challenge," he said.
"The focus on the next game and it is the most important thing for us," Hunt added.
Hunt was linked with the Bafana Bafana coaching job, but Stuart Baxter has since been appointed as the national team head coach.
"I'm not disappointed. Not at all," Hunt concluded.
