Bidvest Wits will be in search of three points which could possible take them to the top of the Absa Premiership log when they visit Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night to take on Orlando Pirates in a league match.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.

Pirates, on the other hand, are in 11th place with five points from five games, and a win could see move into ninth spot.

In head-to-head stats, Pirates and Wits have met in 59 league matches since 1985.
