Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs coach Stuart Baxter admits his side will need to be prepared both "mentally and physically" for the challenge they will face against Bidvest Wits on Wednesday.

The Premiership leaders make the trip to the Bidvest Stadium this week to face the fourth-placed Clever Boys, who sit 10 points adrift of Amakhosi heading into the packed December fixture list.

And Baxter is all too aware of the physicality the Students possess, and has warned his side of the "robust" encounter they are sure to face.

"Playing against Wits is always a difficult game, especially in their backyard," Baxter told Chiefs' official website.

"They are robust and play with a high tempo. We will be faced with a challenge both mentally and physically. We have to be a threat to them to break their momentum."

The Englishman added: "It has and will continue to be a tight game as always. They bring their A-game when they play with us, and we have to be prepared to take the game to them."
