Cape Town - Buhle Mkhwanazi's last-gasp goal proved the difference as Bidvest Wits moved up to second place in the Absa Premiership standings with a 1-0 victory over Chippa United at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Tuesday night.
With Wits having played in the CAF Confederation Cup last Friday, recording a 3-0 victory over Young Buffaloes, many would have expected the Clever Boys to put the Chilli Boys under plenty of pressure throughout.
However, that did not turn out to be the case, with a drab first half offering up no clear-cut scoring chances at either end of the pitch.
Despite boasting home advantage and having announced the appointment of a new head coach in former Ajax Caope Town and Zimbabwe defender Norman Mapeza ahead of kick-off, Chippa struggled to make any impact in the the final third of the pitch.
Unfortunately, there was little improvement after the half-time interval as both sides again struggled to stamp their mark on proceedings.
And, as the match wore on, the match seemed destined to end in a goalless stalemate, a result that would have certainly suited the hosts more than Gavin Hunt's side.
But with the final whistle looming closer, the Chippa defence was finally breached as defender Mkhwanazi fired home to help the Clever Boys claim all three points and a fourth straight league win.
