Cape Town - SuperSport United shift their focus on the PSL opener when they take on Bidvest Wits at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday night.

Matsatsantsa lost to Orlando Pirates in the 2014 MTN8 quarterfinal over the weekend but the setback is now water under the bridge said the club's website.

Cavin Johnson gave four of his new signings a run with new skipper Clayton Daniels and Michael Morton playing full match while Lerato Manzini and Andile Fikizolo started off the bench respectively.

Last season, SuperSport lost 3-2 to Wits in the first round and the second round score ended goalless (0-0).

Visitors SuperSport will rely on players such as David Mathebula, Thuso Phala, Mor Diouf, Sibusiso Khumalo and Jabu Mahlangu.

On the other hand, Wits will rely on new signing Henrico Botes, Ryan Chapman, Onismor Bhasera, Jabulani Shongwe and their captain Sibusiso Vilakazi who netted a hat-trick against the Tshwane-based-outfit last season.

The match kicks off at 20:15.

Who do you think will win the opener between SuperSport and Wits?
