Johannesburg - Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Rowen Fernandez was delighted with their victory over Moroka Swallows on Friday night.

The Clever Boys humbled the Dube Birds 3-0 in an entertaining Absa Premiership clash at the Bidvest stadium, courtesy of a goal from Sameegh Doutie and a brace from Getane Sebede.

The 36-year-old shot-stopper made an impressive "second debut" for the Students on the night and managed to keep a clean sheet which he believes will be a morale booster for him.

The former Bafana Bafana 'keeper re-joined Wits on a free transfer from SuperSport United in the off-season.

“I am happy with a win,” said Fernandez.

“We had a good game and we deserved to win the game.

“I’m confident now that we will do well going forward.

“I am also happy that we didn’t concede on my first game.

“Otherwise, all I can say is well done boys.”

The win for the Clever Boys took them to third place on the log.

Their next league game will be against a rejuvenated Orlando Pirates away from home on Saturday, September 13.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
