Hunt: We don't stand a chance

Johannesburg - Gavin Hunt says SuperSport United are the definite underdogs in the upcoming Tswhane derby.

The three-time champions have not had the best of starts to the new campaign, losing their opening league clash 3-0 to Bidvest Wits before beating Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 last Wednesday, though not very convincingly.

Hunt went on the record and said he thinks his side, on paper, should not be challenging for league honours this season.

Their credentials face another stern test on Saturday night when they face the big-spending Brazilians.

"On paper we shouldn't have a chance against Sundowns, and they look to have all the right players in their squad," Hunt told Football365.co.za.

In his book, the Brazilians have the most impressive squad in the country and to top it off, have managed to keep their top striker Katlego Mphela for another season, something that he could only dream of at Matsatsantsa who have lost Elias Pelembe, Teko Modise, Katlego Mashego, Daine Klate, Mphela and others in recent years.

Making matters worse, captain Bongani Khumalo is set to move to Tottenham Hotspur, while forward Anthony Laffor continues to be baited by most teams - including Sundowns.

"For us, having lost so many players might mean we'll take a bit of time," said Hunt.

"I mean, training is not the same as playing in a match so we just have to take it a step at a time."
