The hosts broke the deadlock in the 10th minute as Thulani Hlatshwayo's knock-on found Sifiso Myeni, who sent a fine volley past goalkeeper Ayanda Dlamini, 1-1.
 
Baroka did not sit back though and nearly leveled matters in the 29th minute through Gift Motupa, who forced Darren Keet into a fine save from distance.
 
The visitors' pressure eventually paid off with five minutes remaining as they were awarded a penalty. Gift Motupa stepped up and slotted home the spot-kick, 1-1.
 
That proved to be the final piece of action in the half as the sides went into the break level.
 
Wits coach Gavin Hunt opted for a change at the start of the second half, withdrawing Vincent Pule for Thobani Mncwango.
 
The Clever Boys saw plenty of the ball in the opening stages of the second half, but they could not carve out a clear-cut chance.
 
Baroka thought they had taken the lead on 64 minutes but the strike was flagged offside just seconds before Wits were denied a penalty by the referee.
 
Ayanda Dlamini came to Baroka's rescue with 17 minutes remaining with a fine save to keep out Sifiso Hlanti's curling free-kick.
 
Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, but they were unable to create openings as the encounter finished 1-1 on the night.
 

Here's how they line up:

Wits: 16. Keet, 2. Allie, 3. Hlatshwayo, 12. Pule, 13, Hlanti, 14. Claasen, 15. Mkhwanazi, 21. Myeni, 25. Gyimah, 39. Mosiatlhaga, 25. Majoro.
 
Subs: 36. Peters, 4. Khumalo, 6. Scott, 9. Rodgers, Ritchie, 32. Alexander, 37. Mncwango.
 
Baroka: 33 Dlamini, 24. Banda. 7. Chawapiwa,, 23. Kgaswane. 2. Kgoetyane, 4. Madubanya, 8. Mdatsane, 29. Mohwatseleng, 15. Mothupa, 12. Motupa, 17. Ngalande. 
 
Subs: 28. Makgaka, 18. Mapetho, 14. Mosele, 13. Sidumo, 16. Vries, 26. Rethabile.
