SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams is hopeful that the club can add CAF Confederation Cup success to this past weekend’s MTN8 triumph.

Williams was the hero in a penalty shootout as United defeated Cape Town City on post-match kicks to claim the MTN8 title in Durban on Saturday.

And the ‘keeper will need to be at his best again this coming weekend when the South Africans travel to Tunisia to face Club Africain in the second leg of the teams’ Confederation Cup semifinal, which is locked at 1-1 after the first leg in Tshwane earlier this month.

"The CAF Confederation Cup is there and we can taste it, it’s a few weeks to go," said Williams, as quoted by Kick-Off.

"We need to write history, we need to put SuperSport on the map.

"SuperSport is one of the bigger teams in the country. Maybe we don't have as much support in the country as others, but we are one of the bigger teams and our history speaks for itself.

"We've been in the last five cup finals, so I'm proud of being part of this team."

The CA v SuperSport match is set for the Olympic Stadium in Rades on Sunday evening.
