Cape Town - Maritzburg United coach Steve Komphela is wary of the variety of options available to Bidvest Wits counterpart Gavin Hunt, and believes this makes his opposite number difficult to predict.

“Gavin Hunt is not easy to predict,” Komphela says.

“He could come throw three strikers at us, he could play three centre backs or two centre backs. He's got variety

“The acquisition of Fikru Tefera sends a message.

“He plays a practical game and does not waste too much time playing sexy football.

“We will have to take the opportunities we get because Gavin will give us nothing.”

The sides meet at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Tuesday with Wits looking to move up in to second place, while Maritzburg could reach fifth with a win.

"Based on what we have done throughout the break, I think we are ready and we are playing at home and we need to win our home games so that we can have a better log position," the coach concluded.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
