The Clever Boys booked their spot in the quarter-finals of the Nedbank Cup on Monday night after beating Chippa United 2-0 at the Bidvest Stadium.

However, Gavin Hunt's charges have been inconsistent in their bid to challenge for the title as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Highlands Park in their last league outing almost two weeks ago.

Wits are placed sixth on the log, 11 points behind log-leaders Kaizer Chiefs with two games in hand compared to Amakhosi.

Meanwhile, Matsatsantsa's chances of challenging for the title a fading away with each passing game after they suffered back-to-back 1-0 league defeats to Golden Arrows and Stellenbosch FC.

Kaitano Tembo's troops are lying fifth on the log, also 11 points behind leaders Chiefs but they have played extra two games compared to the Glamour Boys.

SuperSport have already beaten Wits twice this season, first a 3-0 thumping in the MTN8 quarter-finals and a 1-0 win the reverse league fixture.

Here's how they line up:

SuperSport: 30. Williams, 14. Bhasera, Ditlhokwe, 4. Daniels, 20. Kekana, 8. Furman, 28. Mokoena, 24. Mbule, 16. Modiba, Manziba, 7 .Grobler. 

Subs: 33. Pule, 18. Nhlapo, 23. Fleurs, 26. Donn, Waiswa,17. Lungu, 13. Gaubza

Subs: 23. Goss, 17. Alexander, 24. Macheke, 35. Ritchie, 28. Macuphu, 37. Dzvukamanja, 36. Sekgota.
