Cape Town - Bidvest Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo feels the league is still wide open with up to five teams still able to walk away with the Premiership title.

Trailing leaders Cape Town City by a point, and with two games in hand, the Students must feel the title is theirs to lose, but their South Africa international defender Hlatshwayo believes it's still anyone's trophy.

"It's going to be anybody's league because it is not about the big teams," Hlatshwayo was quoted by the SowetanLIVE website.

"You have a team like Cape Town City, in theory first season also challenging strongly," said Hlatshwayo. "But, I believe we have the endurance to push all the way."

The Clever Boys will now be able to focus solely on the league title after they were shocked by Jomo Cosmos and eliminated from the Nedbank Cup, and face an uphill battle in the CAF Confederations Cup.

"It was a shared ambition to contest all trophies including the league title. But, unfortunately some results did not go our way."

Wits are up against Golden Arrows at the Bidvest Stadium at 19:30 on Tuesday evening.
