Wits V Pirates In Numbers

Absa Premiership - Wits vs. Orlando Pirates
 
Date: 30 April 2014
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
 
Wits are on course to qualify for the Caf Confederation Cup come next season. The Students will have to overcome Orlando Pirates in their PSL fixture at the Bidvest Stadium tonight, and must go on to claim maximum points in their last two games to achieve that feat. With nothing really much to play for this season, Pirates will be hoping to keep the Bucs’ faithful smiling again, and will look for a top eight finish when the curtain falls on the 2013/14 campaign.
