Wits V Swallows In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 5 – Bidvest Wits vs. Moroka Swallows
 
Date: 29 August 2014
 
Time: 20:00
 
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
 
 
After suffering a 3-1 thrashing at the hands of Ajax Cape Town in the mid-week PSL action, Bidvest Wits will entertain the high-flying Moroka Swallows at Bidvest Wits Stadium tonight looking to bounce back to winning ways. The Clever Boys currently occupy fifth position on the Absa Premiership standings, and could temporarily move joint-second with Ajax Cape Town if they manage to claim all the three points and other results go in their way. The Dube Birds on the other hand are in beaming mood following their 3-2 come-from behind victory over Polokwane City.

Key Stats:
 
Despite receiving a hiding from Ajax Cape Town, Bidvest Wits dominate the visiting Moroka Swallows with stats leading up to tonight’s encounter, which could see an attacking game from both sides. The worrying factor though is that Gavin Hunt's men have conceded six goals in their past two matches in both cup and league, and will have to put all stops in place if they are to claim maximum points tonight.
