Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt admits that his side is missing three very important players.

Sibusiso Vilakazi, Phakamani Mahlambi and Papy Faty are all sidelined with injuries and are not available for selection when the Students take on Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup.

"Vilakazi, Mahlambi and Faty are out injured. These are spine players in the team," Hunt said as quoted by KickOff.

"If you take Billiat, Kekana and Nthethe out the Sundowns team then you'll understand what I mean by the spine of a team.

Kick-off is on Friday, March 4 at 20:00.
