Cape Town - Bidvest Wits will look to continue their good form in the Absa Premiership when they host SuperSport United at Bidvest Stadium.

Wits claimed their third win of the season when they defeated University of Pretoria 1-0 away on September 13.

The Johannesburg side has claimed two wins from their two home matches so far this season.

The Clever Boys are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with nine points from four matches.

SuperSport suffered their first defeat of the season when they lost 4-1 at home to Kaizer Chiefs on September 12.

The Tshwane side played to a 1-1 draw at Black Aces in their only away match of the season thus far.

Matsatsantsa are placed eighth on the Absa Premiership log with five points from four matches.

In head-to-head stats, Wits and SuperSport have met in 46 league matches since 1990.

Each side has claimed 14 wins, while 18 matches have been drawn. Even in terms of goals scored there is little to separate the teams, with United having scored 42 times to the Clever Boys’ 41.

Wits have won seven of their 23 home matches against SuperSport, suffering six defeats in the process.

Last season the Clever Boys did a league ‘double’ over Matsatsantsa, winning 1-0 both in Pretoria and Tshwane.

Wits are unbeaten in their last six league matches against SuperSport.

Kick-off is at 19:30 on September 22.
