The Students had a dream start to their CAF Confederations Cup campaign, getting the desired advantage right away after demolishing Swaziland giants Royal Leopards 3-0 on Saturday.

Vodacom Football took time to chat with Gavin Hunt regarding his team performance so far.

"We are trying our level best and taking each game at a time. The boys are also putting extra work at training," stated Hunt.

The Clever boys will need to be wary when they meet Leopards for the second leg on 28 February as they will be looking to redeem themselves at home.

Hunt added: "It is going to be a tough task to fulfil as we will be playing under extremely hot conditions during the day, but we have to go out and do our professional jobs.

“The Royal guys will also try and get goals past us."

Wits face the struggling Moroka Swallows on Tuesday, February 17 at Dobsonville Stadium. Wits will be playing their second Premiership match of the year, after taking all three points from Maritzburg United last week.

Hunt warned that the encounter will be a challenging one, saying: "It won't be an easy match for us considering the fact that Swallows are fighting the relegation war and they have lost two matches in a bounce."
