The clubs will meet at Bidvest Stadium tonight, with the Students needing to overturn a 4-2 deficit from the opening duel last month.
"It's quite plain and simple, to get the first goal is important. If Platinum Stars scores first, we are going to have no choice but to play six up front," Hunt is quoted as saying by the Premier Soccer League's official website.
Hunt, who left SuperSport United in the off-season, added: “Winning a piece of silverware is also extremely important for the club as we are still growing.
"We are not a big club yet but we will be. We attract a good crowd and winning the cup will help us grow our brand even more."
Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs will contest the other last-four battle at Orlando Stadium this afternoon. Pirates won the first leg 1-0.
