According to Soccer Laduma, Leopards coach Sifiso "Nuro" Ntimane believes that the Students undermined the Swaziland side.

"I think they undermined us. Yes we lost away but that didn't mean we will lose again at home," said Ntimane.

"We had studied them and knew how they play.  You know we also played at their stadium which is a bit smaller and we couldn't play our game.

"But when they came here we played our normal game hence the result. We are happy that we have qualified for the next round and we have to up our game.”

Meanwhile, Wits will have to refocus their attention to the PSL when they welcome the current Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns to Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday, March 2015.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
