Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt believes that Phakamani Mahlambi and James Keene give his side valuable options in attack for the Clever Boys.

Mahlambi has scored three goals in three matches since returning from injury, while Keene scored in his first game back in the 5-0 victory against Ajax Cape Town.

As such, Hunt takes the view that the pair are invaluable up front.

"We've got James back and, for me, he should have been man of the match (against Ajax, instead of Mahlambi)," he told the SowetanLIVE.

"James was outstanding and he epitomises what we are all about. We missed him, so he's important for us.

"It was something we had last year when we were running for the league and they both got injured with about 10 games to go. We lost both of them and I knew there was no chance for us (to win the league).

"The one (Mahlambi) doesn't work but uses his pace well and the other (Keene) works his socks off, so it is a great combination."
