Teams: Bidvest Wits v Maritzburg United
Date: 03 April 2018
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
Bidvest Wits’ resolve will be tested when they come up against in-form Maritzburg United in the Absa Premiership at the Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday night.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
The Clever Boys may just have turned the corner from their relegation worries and are now fighting to finish in the top eight with only six rounds of matches remaining.
Gavin Hunt’s charges have been inactive for two weeks owing to the FIFA international break but were in action shortly before the recess as they were knocked out of the CAF Champions League by Angolan side Primeiro de Agosto on penalties.
However, Hunt’s men are unbeaten in their last eight matches in the league following their 1-1 draw with Baroka FC at the beginning of last month and currently occupy 10th spot.
Meanwhile, the Team of Choice are in good form as their 2-1 victory over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup quarter-final clash over the weekend was their third consecutive win in all competitions.
United’s last league match was a 2-1 win over Polokwane City in mid-March, which saw them move up to third spot in the standings.

Wits: 1. Keet, 3. Hlatshwayo, 6. Scott, 11. Pelembe, 13. Hlanti, 14. Mkhwanazi, 26. Ritchie. 28. Keene, 32. Alexander, 33. Frosler, 41. Majoro.
