Golden Arrows v Bidvest Wits

Bidvest Wits will be going all out to make sure they hold on to third place in the Absa Premiership when they travel to Golden Arrows for their final fixture of the season.

Gavin Hunt's side led the way in the Premiership for much of their campaign, but were overtaken by both Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in recent months and now find themselves in a battle to make sure of African football next season.

With Cape Town City breathing down their necks, nothing less than a draw will do for the Students on Saturday or they could end up surrendering third place on the log.

“Our final match (against Arrows) will be like a cup final, like all the other matches. Every game, especially now that Cape Town City are three points behind us," said Wits coach Hunt.

"And the goal difference is almost the same, it will also be tough for the third-place finish still."

In Golden Arrows they face an in-form opponent. Prior to their defeat against league leaders Sundowns in midweek, Abafana Bes'thende enjoyed a five-game unbeaten run that lifted them up to 10th place in the standings.

"Our players played more as a team (against Sundowns). The better second half failed to yield a result even though the opponent was put under severe pressure," said Arrows coach Steve Komphela.

"Our main objective is still to win our last home fixture and last match of the season against Bidvest Wits on Saturday to try and attain a top 8 position."

For Wits, they will be hoping Cole Alexander continues his good work in the midfield, and that experienced striker Lehlohonolo Majoro brings his scoring boots with him to Durban.

For Arrows, they will be relying on Malawian defender Limbikani Mzava to help them keep a clean sheet, while Zimbabwean forward Knox Mutizwa will be eager to contribute up front and help his side win at home.
