Black Leopards have a game in hand and still have a better than good chance of moving away from the relegation zone starting with the 3 points they can solicit against an off-form Bidvest Wits.
Lidoda Duvha will travel to Bidvest Wits on Tuesday night and on the same week will be hosting Warri Wolves of Nigeria on the second leg of the CAF competition. This will definitely be a huge week in the season of the club as they seek both Absa Premiership survival and to advance in the African club competition.
Leopards come from a 5-2 loss against Moroko Swallows and are sitting third from the bottom with 24 points from 26 games, possessing a single game in hand as an advantage from fellow relegation threatened Santos and Jomo Cosmos.
On the other cheek Bidvest Wits haven’t been playing any exciting football themselves. They come from sharing the spoils with Golden Arrows in a one all draw.
On the head to head both teams have met 7 times since 2004 and Wits takes the advantage with 4 wins from the seven matches and Leopards has only 3 wins. There have been no draws whenever these two teams clash so it promises to be a thriller.
Leopards: P Omony; N Xakane, S Sighoole, H Khoza, S Mabunda (K Nkhatha 80’); L Mapolisa, R Monama, I Duiker, E Dzaga, J Obaje (K Taaiboos 75’); R Ramagalela.
Bidvest Wits: Baron, Pule, Mabizela, Jayiya, Mngomezulu, Phillips (Phungwayo 70’), Masalesa, Batabaire, Vilakazi Sibusiso, Miller (Ritson 54’), Zongo (Tshabangu 76’).
