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
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.
