Kaizer Chiefs coach Gavin Hunt is confident that his players will cope with the expected extreme heat and humid weather conditions when they take on PWD Bamenda in the CAF Champions League match at the Limbe Omnisport Stadium in Limbe, Cameroon on Sunday afternoon.

Amakhosi got the feel of the conditions as they train at the match venue on Saturday afternoon. Chiefs arrived in Limbe on Friday after a 16-hour journey via Addis Ababa, Ethiopia before connecting to Douala in Cameroon, then driving by bus to Limbe.

“We trained on Saturday afternoon just to get a feel of the pitch but didn’t do much because of the heat.  We just needed to get the travel out of the legs. The stadium looks really great but our only concern is that the grass is too long so it will be a different type of game for us.”

“We are not so worried about the extreme heat and humid weather conditions because when you get into this competition you expect to play in such conditions,” adds Hunt. “I am confident that the players will cope.” Hunt told the club’s official website.

The match will kickoff at 15:00 (16:00 SA time) on Sunday.
