Wits moved three points clear of champions Mamelodi Sundowns at the summit with four games left following a 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates at the same venue last night.
The Students next host top-eight contenders Maritzburg, who enter the contest with confidence after defeating title contenders Cape Town City 1-0 on Monday.
"Wits are championship material," says Davids. "They are a quality side. They believe the league is there for the taking now so they will do everything not to let it slip. We go into this game as underdogs and it’s going to be a difficult game for us."
Davids is wary of complacency creeping into his seventh-placed side as they target a ticket to next season's MTN8 Cup.
"Yes, we are on track with our target to finish in the top eight, but we have not achieved that yet. More work still needs to be done, and we have to face the challenges ahead to achieve our target."
