Teams: Mamelodi Sundowns v Bidvest Wits
Date: 14 April 2018
Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium
Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to extend their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership table when they host Bidvest Wits at Loftus Stadium this evening.
Pitso Mosimane’s charges opened up a four-point lead after beating Baroka FC 2-1 last weekend, but the lead was cut to three following Orlando Pirates' 0-0 draw with SuperSport United.
The Tshwane side could open a six-point gap with a win over The Clever Boys with only four matches remaining thereafter.
Meanwhile, Gavin Hunt’s men will be a tough nut to crack as they lost their first away match since October last year after going down 1-0 to Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday.
The defeat to the Urban Warriors ended a nine-match unbeaten run and the outgoing champions will want to return to their undefeated form.
