Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt felt his side could have scored six goals in their 3-0 victory over Royal Leopards on Saturday evening.

The Clever Boys started their CAF Confederations Cup campaign in winning fashion, with Ben Motshwari opening the scoring in the first half before Sthembiso Ngcobo bagged a brace in the second half to put the game to bed.

However, Hunt wasn't completely satisfied with how the match panned out, although he did have plenty of positives to take away from his team's performance.

"To be honest we could have doubled the figures of the game," Hunt is quoted as saying by KickOff.

"However, the most important thing is that we gave a run to lot of young players in a good and really competitive environment, and that's what we wanted."

He added: "They were competitive and aggressive. When they broke down, they broke with speed. They were only let down by their final ball in the last third.

"We will approach [the second leg] exactly the same; give chances to the kids and see how they respond in a hostile environment and on an artificial field, and in the middle of the day."
