Cape Town - Wits coach Gavin Hunt admits that it will be impossible to progress in the CAF Confederations Cup after their 3-0 loss against Azam on Saturday.

The university club will have to score at least four goals while not conceding in the second leg in Tanzania on Saturday.

Hunt opted to field a second string side with their league clash against Orlando Pirates in mind on Wednesday.

"It's over now. You need to win 4-0 there. If you can't score one here how are you going to win by scoring four there?," Hunt said after the game.

"Now we have to do what we have to do to concentrate where our strengths lies and that's where we will concentrate.

"What do you want me to say? There is not much I can say about it. We had three or four open chances, open goals and we didn't score.

"We are battling all over the show and the squad is very thin and we have to use our squad. It is important to use the squad."

The priority for Wits is the Premiership where they are seven points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
