Johannesburg - Newly signed Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Darren Keet has said that he is not expecting to walk straight into the starting line-up but insists that he is anticipating healthy competition with Moeneeb Josephs in the upcoming 2016/17 Absa Premiership season.

The Cape Town-born 'keeper has re-joined the Clever Boys following his departure from Belgian side KV Kortrijk last month and has hinted that he wants to do well enough to be recognised by head coach Gavin Hunt.

The 29-year-old also praised his counterpart, Josephs, for his tremendous 2015/16 campaign between the sticks and cited that 'Slim Kat' deserved to walk away with the goalkeeper of the season accolade.

Keet said he was aware of Josephs' top notch form when he decided to sign for the Students but that did not hinder him from his reunion with the team.

“It doesn’t affect my decision at all, I was aware of that,” said Keet.

“Moeneeb (Josephs) had a fantastic season last year and for me personally, I think he should have been the goalkeeper of the season.

“And he was one of the best players for Wits last season and obviously I’m going to the team not expecting to play but I want to challenge for a place in the team.

“At all my previous teams I have never gone as a first choice keeper and I never wanted to be, I only wanted to do well enough to play and I believe it’s the same for Moeneeb Josephs.

“He wants to play and I want to play so that would make a good competition.”
