We suffered our first home loss in the league competition tonight at the hand of Bidvest Wits.

Looking to retain our home status and give The Clever Boys a run for their money, it was just not our day as we went down 1-0 to the visiting team.

Our first set back was a penalty conceded in the 32nd minute, where Gumede was deemed to have fouled Motupa in the box. He took the spot kick and found his mark to give Wits the lead.

We were denied an eqaliser minutes later as Hlanti cleared a Mtshali effort off the line after Goss fumbled the ball.

We played with better momentum in the second half, taking the ball up field better and getting into some favourable positions, but could not find the final spaces to have a decent attempt at goals.

With 20 minutes left on the clock, after putting The Students under some pressure we were awared a penalty after Hotto tripped S.Dube in the box, but Mutizwa wasted the opportunity and put his effort wide.

Both sides created chances after this, but neither managed to find the back of the net.

Not the result we were hoping for as we head off to play Highlands Park in just over a weeks time.
