Date: 29 August 2014
Satdium: Bidvest Stadium
A brace from Getaneh Kebede and a solitary strike from Sameegh Doutie saw Bidvest Wits defeat Moroka Swallows 3-0 in a Absa Premiership encounter at the Bidvest Stadium.
Siyabonga Nomvethe should have opened the scoring in the 16th minute, the striker was played through on goal by Lerato Chabangu, but managed to blast his effort over the bar.
Two minutes later and Swallows were punished for that miss, as Kebede showed great composure in the box to fire into the back of the net.
Chances were hard to come by in the remainder of the opening 45 minutes, with Sibusiso Vilakazi going the closest with header just before the halftime break.
Swallows were dealt a double blow in the first half, as Nomvethe and Chabangu were both forced off through injury.
Kebede doubled the hosts lead shortly after the halftime break with a neat glancing header, after being picked out by Toriq Losper.
It got better for Wits in the 63rd minute, as Sameegh Doutie curled home a wonderful free-kick to increase their advantage.
Swallows, meanwhile, failed to create any openings in the second half, with Nomvethe and Chabangu not on the pitch.

Bidvest Wits: Fernandez, Kwakman, Hlatshwayo, Losper, Vilakazi, Ngcobo, Nhlapo, Kebede, Bhasera, Sheppard, Ntshangase
