Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt returns to his former hunting ground when the Students square up to Moroka Swallows at the Dobsonville Stadium on Tuesday night.
Read: Wits putting in extra work
Wits have taken four points from their two league matches in 2015 and are level on points with second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns in the Absa Premiership standings.
Swallows, on the other hand, are a side with big problems. Having suffered two defeats from two games in 2015, and six goals conceded, the Birds find themselves just one point above the drop zone.
Fani Madida’s side were close to taking a point off Polokwane City on Saturday night, only to concede a last-minute goal in a 2-1 defeat, their only goal coming from Felix Obada’s superb individual effort.
The Clever Boys, meanwhile, were 3-0 winners over Swaziland side Royal Leopards last Friday night in a CAF Confederations clash played in Johannesburg, that win coming on the back of a 2-1 victory over Maritzburg United in their most recent league outing.
Wits coach Gavin Hunt, who spent five seasons at the helm for Swallows, was able to field his more inexperienced players as they ran out comfortable winners against Leopards, although it was a player who has been around the block, Sthembiso Ngcobo, who paved the way to victory with two goals.
Birds boss Madida does at least have some good news in that defender Luvhengo Mungomeni returns from suspension.
Hunt, meanwhile, has spoken recently of his pleasure at having midfielder Papy Faty back in the mix after a nine month injury-enforced absence, the only player still sidelined for the Students being Calvin Kadi.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
