Cape Town - Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs believes it's about time the investment made in the team to recruit star players bears fruit.

The university club management has not sparred any expenses in building a strong team, with the likes of Elias Pelembe, Daine Klate and Bongani Khumalo and James Keene having joined in the past year.

Wits remain in the running for silverware this season after a narrow 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup Last 32 on Friday night.

"It was very important for us. We have a very good squad, and we have nothing to show for that yet - no trophies, no nothing - so to advance in this cup is very important for us," Josephs told KickOff.

"We want to end up with silverware at the end of the day because, as a footballer, it's all about what you've won.

"We have a good team; the club has invested a lot in this team so it's time to pay back; and this advancement to the next round is a step in the right direction.

"I think Bloemfontein Celtic let us off the hook, but that's how cup games are. You take your chance; they miss their chance and it's unfortunate."
