Pirates would like to get back to winning ways following a 6-0 hiding from Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday afternoon. The Soweto Giants’ second crushing defeat come at the hands another Pretoria-based club in SuperSport United, leading to the resignation of coach Muhsin Ertugral.

Hunt believes the Buccaneers will look to redeem themselves at the expense of his team.

“We are expecting a very tough game on Wednesday against Pirates. They will certainly come out much stronger and determined to protect their pride,” Hunt is quoted on his club’s website.
