Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt is not taking anything for granted when his charges take on Highlands Park on Saturday.

The Clever Boys are sitting pretty at the top of the Absa Premiership table, three points clear of Mamelodi Sundowns who have two games in hand. Meanwhile, Highlands Park have managed just four wins in their 19 games, but Hunt is not taking any notice of that.

"Another fight‚ another fight‚" the Capetonian told The Sowetan.

"Highlands Park is a hard team to play against‚ if not the hardest because of the way they play the game.

"There’s just nothing wrong with that because everybody has got a way they want to play.

"We just have to overcome those things - if you want to win you have to overcome those things. You have to be better‚ so you have to match the intensity and hopefully we have the ability to take over."

Wits will rely on imports Simon Murray and Deon Hotto, who have netted 11 goals between them.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
