Cape Town - Bidvest Wits are back at the top of the Absa Premiership standings, following their convincing 2-1 victory against Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The result comes as a tremendous relief for champion coach Gavin Hunt, whose team had dropped points in two of their previous three Absa Premiership encounters. The most disappointing of those results, perhaps, being the 1-2 defeat against Bloemfontein Celtic in Johannesburg.
Wits are now top of the Absa Premiership standings, having secured 27 points in 14 outings this season, and they also have a game in hand. All of which amounts to a massive psychological advantage ahead of the Christmas break.
It also puts tremendous pressure on a chasing pack which includes Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and Pitso Mosimane's Mamelodi Sundowns.
Namibian midfielder Deon Hotto was substituted with five minutes to play in regulation.
