  • 90'

    FULL-TIME: POLOKWANE CITY 0-1 BIDVEST WITS! Wits hold out to secure the victory despite two late yellows inside injury time. Not the best of performances from Gavin Hunt's men but the desired result.

  • 88'

    Polokwane City with the final throw of the dice as Monde goes on for Mvelase.

  • 82'

    Peterson goes into the book for the sixth yellow card of the night. Hlongwane was also cautioned a few minutes earlier.

  • 80'

    Into the final 10 minutes. Time running out for Polokwane City who were leading the PSL table before tonight.

  • 75'

    Still just Hotto's goal separating this tie. The last 10 minutes has been quiet from both teams and Polokwane needing some inspiration if they are to get anything out of the last 15 minutes.

  • 63'

    Polokwane City also make a substitution as Nku comes on for Macuphu.

  • 62'

    Lark is off as Machupu takes to the field. Inside the final 30 minutes here and still just one goal separating the sides.

  • 55'

    First substitution for the day as Hlubi makes way for Mashumba for Polokwane City.

  • 51'

    Wits continue to build pressure as they win a few corners in quick succession but fail to make them count.

  • 48'

    Motupa goes into the book early on in the second half, but Wits have come out and started strongly so far.

  • 46'

    The second half is underway!

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: POLOKWANE CITY 0-1 BIDVEST WITS! A tight first half but it's Gavin Hunt's men who lead at the break. They absorbed a lot of pressure in the opening exchanges before growing in the game and Hotto's late goal is the difference.

  • 42'

    GOAL, BIDVEST WITS, HOTTO! 1-0: finally a breakthrough as the Clever Boys midfielder puts them ahead just before the break.

  • 30'

    A tight game so far as we enter the last 15 minutes, Polokwane City slightly ahead with a few more shots on target and three corners to Wits' one.

  • 25'

    Just past the halfway mark in the first half and Polokwane City well on top. They have had four shots on target and forced a save from Petersen.

  • 17'

    Yellow this time for Polokwane as Themba Chauke goes into the book.

  • 5'

    Ritchie goes into the book early for a rash challenge after an even start from the teams. Both sides have a had an attempt on goal but neither was on target.

  • 1'

    Kick off! Play underway between Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City after a slight delay due to a problem with the goal nets.
