"We signed eight kids from the our youth development and they are gonna play in the CAF Confederations Cup. I will combine them with the first team," Hunt says.

"I will mix and match. I've got a team in my mind with the players that played against Maritzburg United, and obviously I have another game on Tuesday [against Moroka Swallows].

"Games will come every three or four days which is what we want because we are the better side when we play...I know that and I have been in football for a very long time. I know in football when the team plays three games in a week we're better."

Hunt adds of competing in Africa: "It's gonna be good experience for some of the young players and with older ones. We are looking forward to it and we will try to do the best we can."

The Students marked their return to Absa Premiership action with a 2-1 victory at Maritzburg United on Tuesday. Hunt's team are third on the League table with 34 points from 19 matches.
