Cape Town - Onismor Bhasera believes that if Bidvest Wits can win the MTN8, it will lead to a domino effect where more trophies will come to the club.
The Premiership outfit have invested heavily in their squad, from the players they have brought and even coach Gavin Hunt, who is in his third season with the Clever Boys.
But they have nothing to show for it in terms of silverware. The last time Wits lifted a trophy was the Nedbank Cup in 2010 under Roger de Sa.
They have an opportunity to change that in the MTN8 where they host Ajax Cape Town on Sunday at Bidvest Stadium in the second leg of their semi-final tie. The first leg in Stellenbosch ended in a 1-1 draw.
"We have a nice bunch of lads who support each other at the club," Bhasera told Football411.
"We have a good coach who knows how to win. We want to achieve greater things.
"We need to have a winning mentality every time we step into the field. That's what the coach has been instilling in every one of us.
"If we can win this trophy, more will follow because we are close to being a title-winning side.
"We have the players and the coach to do that. We just need to start somewhere. The MTN8 is a good opportunity for that, especially as the first trophy of the season. If we win it, it will set a good tone for the rest of the season."
Bhasera should know this, he won this trophy in his time with Kaizer Chiefs in 2008.
"It was awesome," Bhasera added. "It's one of those experiences that you want to achieve in your life as a footballer.
"It's something that you want to do every time once you taste it because success brings more success. We can do it here too."
