Hunt’s Wits eye league sum­mit

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT -

Bid­vest Wits go in search of a fifth win in six matches in all com­pe­ti­tions as they wel­come Bloem­fontein Celtic to Mil­park this evening.

The Clever Boys could re­gain top spot in the Absa Premier­ship with a win, de­pend­ing on what hap­pens be­tween ti­tle ri­vals Mamelodi Sun­downs and league lead­ers Or­lando Pi­rates. In any case, the Clever Boys are just two points be­hind Bucs, with two games in hand.

In­ter­est­ingly Wits have been bet­ter on the road this sea­son than at home – Gavin Hunt’s side are un­beaten away in all com­pe­ti­tions, win­ning five and draw­ing two of their matches. At home, they have stum­bled to un­likely de­feats against Su­per­Sport United and Polok­wane City, though they have won their other three matches at Bid­vest Sta­dium.

Celtic have faded af­ter an in­cred­i­ble start to the sea­son - Steve Kom­phela’s side did, how­ever, break a four-game drought when they beat Baroka FC 1-0 on Oc­to­ber 28. – Jonty Mark
