Cape Town - Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt has warned his side to not take Mpumalanga Black Aces for granted, ahead of their Premiership clash on Tuesday night.

Amazayoni, who have struggled for consistency in the second-half of the season, beat the Clever Boys 1-0 in the reverse fixture at Bidvest Stadium earlier this year.

Failure to collect maximum points at Mbombela Stadium would see the Students all but hand the league title to Mamelodi Sundowns, who are six points clear at the top of the standings with three games remaining.

"They are a good side; Aces have good pace and they beat us here. They're a good side," said Hunt.

"Are they different? [to when they beat us here] I don't know. I'm always wary of those types of teams.

"They haven't won so they're difficult to play against. They've got a lot of pace and they have someone who scores goals."

The former Supersport United coach is also cautious of leading goal-scorer Collins Mbesuma, who has not scored in the last five league games, adding that the Zambian will be hungry for goals.

"He scores; he's top goal-scorer so it's difficult," Hunt added. "It's dangerous [that he hasn't scored much recently], it means it's got to come some time, it's dangerous. I wish he had scored [against Polokwane City]."

Kick-off is at 19:30.
