Cape Town - Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt has admitted that he is skeptical of which Mamelodi Sundowns side his charges will be up against on Saturday.

Preview: Sundowns v Wits

The Clever Boys resume their Premiership campaign with a visit to Loftus for a clash against the reigning league champions after a two-week break because of international matches.

However, Hunt said that it has been tricky planning their assault on the Brazilians, who have a deep squad filled with talent that would walk into most other PSL sides.

"You never know what we will get when we face Sundowns," the Wits coach told the Sowetan.

"We do spend sleepless nights (plotting), just like we do with any other team in the league. So this does not make our opponents special."

The two sides are currently neck-and-neck in the standings, tied on 13 points, with both teams having scored five goals and conceded four from their seven matches. Wits are sitting in third place, while Sundowns occupy the fourth spot by virtue of B coming ahead of M in the alphabet.

Last season the Brazilians won their home match 2-1, while the Clever Boys claimed three points in their home fixture with a 3-1 victory.

The epic encounter is set to start at 18:00 on Saturday, October 18.
