Gavin Hunt said on FARPost: “It is a great achievement – the last eight, it is going to be tough now – who we are going to draw, but we will worry about that when we get to it.

“This is a hell of a competition to play, and we haven’t signed anyone, you got to look at it in that perspective – a squad that we’ve got to try and go on this front, it is a big achievement so far and we have overachieved, but we haven’t won anything.

“To win league titles is the ultimate but this (CAF Champions League) is the flagship, the one that has come on the radar now, we have got a taste of it now, good experience.”

Hunt added: “The club has brought me here to win trophies, they will win trophies with me. What we need to do is to look at our squad going forward and get the desire and attitude back; I mean they were so close last year but we need to be challenging for trophies but that will take time with the squad.”
