Gavin Hunt knows it will be difficult to contend with Horoya at their home ground and he thinks the hosts are the favourites.

“We are expecting a very difficult match. In South Africa, it was complicated [0-0 draw],” Hunt told the media as per Horoya’s website.

“I already know this team from Horoya, we played against it with Bidvest in a small stage [Caf Confederation Cup]. This time it will be difficult in a big city, but we will try to get a result.

“Khama Billiat is a very important player, but I’m waiting to see if he can play or not. It is true that this is going to be a difficult match. Otherwise, I consider Horoya AC as the favourites of this meeting.”

“Obviously we have both our strikers not here which is a big blow from that perspective because we really do not have a number nine to play,” Hunt added when he spoke to the Kaizer Chiefs media team.

“So we have to make another plan with Castro being out and Nurkovic not here. In these kinds of conditions sometimes you need a number nine to play but anyway we will make a plan. We have to try and plan around that and change the team’s shape a little bit.

“The plan is obviously if we can score a goal we will put them under huge pressure and they will have to score two. A scoring draw looks the way to go but football doesn’t work like that. We will have to see. This team [Horoya] hasn’t been beaten here for a long time. We are positive and we have to try and score a goal which is the most important thing.”
