However, through the gruelling fixture list, they'll be missing several first-team members of the squad through injury and suspension while Kgotso Moleko has been offered a special leave of absence.
"We have been facing challenge defensively," Hunt admits as they look to end their poor run of form. "But we are doing a lot of work on the training ground and a lot of analysis.
"It's just been individual errors and a number of injuries, but we need to start doing better. We are under no illusions it will be a tough game. We need to get ourselves back up again and go in there with a good attitude and a good mindset.
On the absentees for the Matsantsansa clash: "We are going to have to juggle and mix and match because of suspensions, and nobody is really back from injury. Kgotso Moleko is also missing as he has a family bereavement."
