Craig Rosslee’s side are placed second on the Absa Premiership log with nine points from four matches.

Wits won a second successive home match this past weekend, defeating Ajax Cape Town 1-0. They are unbeaten in the league and yet to concede a goal.

The Johannesburg side’s previous home result was a 1-0 victory over Ajax Cape Town.

Their next three league opponents are Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates (both away) and Polokwane City (home).

Gavin Hunt’s side are placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with seven points from three matches.

In head-to-head stats, Wits and AmaZulu have met in 49 league matches since 1985.

The Clever Boys have claimed 18 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 19 matches have been drawn.

Wits have a good home record against AmaZulu, with 13 wins and just five defeats from 25 matches.
