Cape Town - Bidvest Wits will look to retain their place at the top of the Absa Premiership when they host Golden Arrows at Bidvest Stadium.

The Johannesburg side has claimed 13 points from five home matches this season.

The Clever Boys are placed first on the Absa Premiership log with 23 points from 10 matches.

Arrows suffered their third loss of the season when they were beaten 3-1 at Kaizer Chiefs on November 3.

The Durban side has claimed seven points from five away matches this season.

Abafana Bes’thende are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 14 points from nine matches.

In head-to-head stats, Wits and Arrows have met in 24 league matches since 2001/02.
