Head Coach Gavin Hunt’s side claimed a 1-0 win over Amakhosi, with James Keene scoring a goal from the only chance created by the Students in the encounter.

However, according to the statistics, Wits were in control of the game, having 57.4% of the possession on the day.

The Students also looked the most threatening in front of goal, with six of their 13 shots on target on the day, while Chiefs were only threatening on two occasions out of their seven shots taken.

Wits also made 91 more successful passes than Chiefs’ 257, however, both sides seemed to have equalled one another in the number of times they lost the ball on the day (160).

Buhle Mkhwanazi, James Keene, Amr Gamal, Xola Mlambo and Thabang Monare all had shots on target for Wits, while Dumisani Zuma and Willard Katsande were the only two Chiefs players to threaten Darren Keet on the day.

Mlambo was deservedly awarded the Man of the Match award after the encounter, with the 26-year-old making 61 touches, 49 successful passes with one shot on target, compared to Chiefs’ Katsande, who was the best player for Amakhosi, making 55 touches, 34 successful passes with one shot on target.
