Hunt watched in horror as his side conceded four goals in the space of 10 minutes in the second half, through a brace by Sphelele Mthembu, and goals from Mogakolodi Ngele and Henrico Botes.
Hunt says his side conceded soft goals and did not deserve to lose.
“It was not a true reflection of the match but we will bounce back,” the coach says.
“We certainly didn’t deserve to lose the game, we could have scored six or more. Once we scored we had 10 minutes of madness. We were solid before, but in saying that we still had chances to equalise and all credit to them they got the goals.
“When we had the chances we never scored, we conceded poor goals.”
But Hunt feels his side still have a chance in the second leg and that they will be stronger than they were today.
“Of course we are not happy about it, but by the time we play them in two months or five or whenever we play them, we will be stronger.
“Let’s be honest, it was not the true reflection of the match, every chance they had they scored!”
The second leg will be on September 24 at Bidvest Stadium, with a 7.30pm kick-off.
