Gavin Hunt will be hoping to end his four year trophy drought when Bidvest Wits lock-horns against Mamelodi Sundowns in the finals of the MTN8 at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday (5PM).

Hunt begged three Absa Premiership titles and the Nedbank cup with SuperSport United, but the hard to please coach had no luck with the Clever Boys.

In his first season in charge of Wits in 2014, he reached the Nedbank Cup final only to lose 3-1 to Orlando Pirates in Durban and last season finished behind Sundowns in the league. But this time around he has assembled a good squad that is capable of winning a trophy for the club since their Nedbank cup glory in 2010.

Hunt said: “It has been a long week for us, especially with the game against Pirates was postponed but we are looking forward to the final and we are very honoured to be playing on Saturday.”

“I was very disappointed that I couldn’t play Pirates. But we can’t make any excuses, we need to prepare for the game and hope that we do well.

“I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to win something so far, but you also have to look at the players we had when I came here. We had to change the mindset of their game and shape them in winning cups.”

Hunt will bank highly on his experienced players like Daine Klate, Elias Pelembe, Eleazar Rodgers and Sifiso Myeni to come to the party to clinch the much anticipated Wafa Wafa title.
