Wits triple boost ahead of Chiefs clash


Bidvest Wits are set to welcome back midfielder Thabang Monare and goalkeeper Ricardo Goss for tonight's league clash against Kaizer Chiefs.

Orlando Stadium hosts another huge PSL clash at 18h00 as Amakhosi prepare for their first match of the restarted football season.

Monare missed the Nedbank Cup semi-final against Mamelodi Sundowns in Soweto this past weekend due to a knee injury while Goss served the last match of his suspension for unsporting behaviour.

Also set to return for The Clever Boys is striker Mxolisi Macuphu after he also missed the Nedbank Cup clash following his hijacking in Johannesburg recently.

"Monare is okay now, he trained this week. He is expected to undergo a late fitness test today," an official at Wits tells KickOff.com.

However, left-back Sifiso Hlanti is suspended for the Absa Premiership clash, which could take Gavin Hunt's side as high as third place on the table if they win.

Victory for The Glamour Boys will see them move six points ahead of second-placed Sundowns after their draw with Orlando Pirates on Tuesday.

Wits are making their last appearance in the PSL after the club was sold to new owners in Limpopo.
