PREVIEW: Bidvest Wits vs Ajax Cape Town


Wits claimed their first win of the season in their previous outing, beating Golden Arrows 1-0 at home following a season-opening goalless draw away to Platinum Stars. That has left them sixth on the log with four points.

Ajax suffered their first defeat of the campaign in their last match, losing 2-1 at home to AmaZulu. This, coupled with a draw against Arrows at the start of August, has them 12th on the log.
