Kaizer Chiefs have a massive task when they face Orlando Pirates to overturn their 3-0 defeat on the MTN8 cup this afternoon at FNB Stadium.
Amakhosi, whose trophy drought will stretch to six years should they drop out of the MTN8 today, will be relying on their existing arsenal after their transfer ban was upheld by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
Having missed out on last weekend’s first leg encounter as well as the midweek draw against TS Galaxy, Hunt has confirmed that full-back Reeve Frosler has recovered from illness and is part of the squad for Sunday’s do-or-die clash.
“Yes, Reeve trained well on Friday and will be available for selection,” Hunt told the Kaizer Chiefs official website. “We must limit talking much and do our talking on the pitch.”
The Amakhosi coach states that they have to score first and avoid conceding which would further place Pirates in an advantageous position with an away goal.
“The most important thing on Sunday afternoon is to win the match,” said Hunt.
“There is no question, we are starting the match trailing 0-3 against a side that is capable of beating any team in the league. The first aim going into the match is to win the contest.
“For them, it will be a matter of resuming the match from 0-0. We cannot afford to concede a goal. If we concede it will be a tall order to recover. I do not look much at what happened during the midweek games, I plan for the next match.”. concluded Hunt
