Johannesburg - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt says their ambition is to get into the bracket of teams that win trophies in the Absa Premiership ahead of their MTN clash against SuperSport United next week.

The Clever Boys will open their season against Matsatsantsa in the MTN8 quarter-final at the Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday.

Despite facing the new-look Matsatsantsa, Hunt believes that his former employers still have the pedigree of challenging for top honours in top flight football, but has vowed to give them a good run for their money.

“SuperSport United have changed a lot recently with their new players," said Hunt.

“A lot of players have left the club and only one or two are still there.

“But that’s the nature of football so obviously they’ll do well again next season.

“They are a team with a pedigree of winning trophies."

The 51-year-old mentor highlighted Wits' heroics in the last three seasons, citing that they are now capable of competing with the rest of the top four clubs in the country.

“We don’t have a history of winning too many trophies but we are trying to get into that bracket," said the former Matsatsantsa coach.

“Our league performance in the last two to three years has shown that we have what it takes to compete against the top four teams.

“So let’s see how it will go this coming season.”
