Wits hoping for good result against Highlands Park

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Bidvest Wits are eager to go back to winning ways after dropping three crucial points in their 1-0 defeat in the hands of SuperSport United at home.

The Clever Boys travel to Makhulong Stadium for yet another tricky assignment against Highlands Park on Tuesday.

On the back of their mind, the Milpark side would want nothing more than collect three points in a game that could mark the side’s restoration of happy days.

Both sides are coming from a two-week international break and Wits head coach Gavin Hunt hopes to give a better performance after this rest.

Wits are sitting on the fifth position on the log, a little above their rivals and are the only team in the league with three games in hand having played seven games.

Wits assistant coach Paul Johnstone says that they are going to Tuesday’s game with a positive mindset.

Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo echoes his manager’s sentiments, emphasising the vitality of the game.

The skipper says that preparations are going well and all players are available for selection, with striker Simon Murray the only player out on injury.

The injured Murray anticipates a tough game but believes that his fellow team-mates will come back home with the needed points.

Murray picked up a knee injury in the second game of the league and is expected to be out of the game for nine months. The 27-year-old Scottish born is recovering well.
