Mokwena was appointed as the Chilli Boys coach on Wednesday as a stop-gap until the end of the season after Norman Mapeza parted ways with the club on Monday.

Mapeza’s departure came as a shock after Chippa ended their five-match winless run in the league with a crucial 1-0 win over bottom side AmaZulu last Saturday.

Mokwena finds Chippa lying 11th on the log with 25 points, five points clear of the relegation zone.

Meanwhile, the Clever Boys’ title chances took another blow after losing 2-0 to SuperSport United last Saturday, which was their third defeat in their last five league matches.

Wits had to settle for sixth spot on the table and are now 14 points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs having played two matches less than Amakhosi.

Gavin Hunt’s charges have already beaten Chippa twice this season, after claiming a 1-0 win in the league and a 2-0 victory in the Nedbank Cup last 16.

Here's how they line up:

Wits: 1. Petersen; 3. Hlanti, 26. Gordinho, 15. Mkhwanazi, 24. Macheke, 17. Alexander, 14. Nange, 7. Pelembe, 11. Hotto, 37. Dzvukamanja, 28. Macuphu.

Subs: 16. Mhlongo, 4. Nonyane, 8. Monare, 10. Domingo, 19. Eva Nga, Human, 36. Sekgota.

Chippa:  34. Mothwa, 47. Nsabiyumva, 21. Maphanga, 12. Malepe, 20. K.Moyo, 22. Modisane, 44. Komane, 4. Gamildien, 26. Sekotlong, 33. Mahola, 40. Twala

Subs: Mazibuko, Maphangule, 17. Damons, 2. Masalesa, 11. Maziya, 32. Lentjies, 8. Rakhale
