Defending champions Bidvest Wits have advanced to the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout competition.

The Clever Boys beat Free State Stars 1-0 in their first round match of the cup competition in Bethlehem on Saturday afternoon.

It took the Clever Boys just 38 seconds to score the winning goal with Scot Simon Murray finding the back of the net after receiving a pass from Gift Motupa.

Meanwhile, the Telkom Knockout first round match between Baroka FC and Golden Arrows at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium has been re-scheduled to a late kick-off and will now start at 20H15 on Saturday night.

The fixture was initially scheduled for 15H30 in the afternoon.

The game has been moved because Golden Arrows were stuck for hours on the N1 following the tragic bus crash in which 27 people were killed on Friday night.

The club reportedly arrived at the hotel on Saturday morning after spending the better part of the night on the N1.
