Soccer can be unpredictable.

And having been in the game for years, SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt knows better than most to make predictions about their Absa Premiership clash against Platinum Stars on Sunday at Olympia Park Stadium in Rustenburg (5pm kickoff).

Hunt said his team will do nothing different leading up to the Stars game, and that besides bringing the team together, the win against Ajax was no different from any other victory.

Hunt is not only playing down the result that saw his side closing in on the Cape Town team, but is also determined to protect youngster Kermit Erasmus from the hype surrounding his stellar performance against Ajax.

Meanwhile, Stars' general manager Thamaga Mokgopi warns: "Write us off at your own peril, but the fact is we are in there with a chance. We are playing really well at the moment ."
