SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt has admitted that his side will find it difficult to reach the CAF Confederation Cup quarter-finals after a 2-0 loss to USM Alger at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

Matsantsa are now bottom of Group A after two losses in two games.

Hunt has previously complained about injuries to his squad and how demanding it was to play in Africa with a ‘thin’ squad.

“It’s difficult because there are four games left and it is going to be very difficult [to advance], now that we have lost this game, especially going into this team away, which are a very good team,” Hunt told the media.

“Certainly, they have got a lot of experience, and we haven’t. The size and physicality were really good. We will tackle that when we get there, but we have to go away this week and we will try and take a team away and have one eye on the game when we come back.”
