Usuthu poised for Wits test

AmaZulu will play their fifth away game of the season when they visit Bidvest Wits for an Absa Premiership encounter at Bidvest Stadium on Friday night at 8pm.

Usuthu are still in search of their first win of the season and are currently placed 16th on the table with three points from six matches.

Craig Rosslee’s side have lost two and drawn two of the four games played on the road so far this season.

In their last outing they came from behind twice to claim a 2-2 draw against Polokwane City and the coach was happy with the fighting spirit.

Their next three league opponents are Chippa United (home), Free State Stars (away) and Black Aces (home).

Wits will be looking to bounce back to winning ways after going down 1-0 to Orlando Pirates in their last league encounter, their second league defeat of the season.

The Johannesburg side has claimed seven points from a possible nine in home matches this season.

Their next three league opponents are Mamelodi Sundowns (away), Polokwane City (home) and Bloemfontein Celtic (away).

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

In head-to-head stats, Wits and AmaZulu have met in 51 league matches since 1985.

The Clever Boys have 19 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 20 matches have been drawn.

Wits have won 13 of their 26 home matches against AmaZulu, suffering just five defeats down the years.

Last season the Johannesburg side took four points off their Durban counterparts, drawing 1-1 in Gauteng before a 1-0 win in the return match in KwaZulu-Natal.
