Bidvest Wits will look to put a spanner in the works for visiting Kaizer Chiefs when the PSL title contenders travel to the Bidvest Stadium, in Johannesburg, on Wednesday.

The Clever Boys are unbeaten in their last seven PSL encounters, having picked up eight wins out of their last 11 games, losing only once.

The Students could decide who lifts the PSL trophy this season, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Chiefs battling it out for top spot, with a win over Chiefs all but gifting the title to Sundowns.
 
Wits have managed to bag 27 points from their 12 home games this season.

Gavin Hunt's side head into the clash on the back of a goalless draw with SuperSport United over the weekend and are still in with a shout as the PSL title race hots up. 

Amakhosi, meanwhile, head into the clash following a disappointing 2-1 home loss to ASEC Mimosas, in the Confederation Cup.

The Soweto giants have claimed 26 points out of a possible 39 away from home this season.

The Glamour Boys are still competing on three fronts, with the PSL, Nedbank Cup and Caf Confederation Cup all this up for grabs and within reach, making Wednesday's encounter a vital one for Stuart Baxter, should Chiefs aim to retain their league title. 

  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Wits have the toughest run-in of the three title contenders, with games against Kaizer Chiefs, Maritzburg United and Orlando Pirates still in wait.
  • Sundowns lead Kaizer Chiefs by six points at the top of the table, but have played two games more than the Soweto outfit.
  • Chiefs will go level with the Brazilians should they win both games in hand, in which case the PSL will be decided by goal-difference.
  • When the pair met earlier this season, Chiefs walked away with a 2-1 win at home, courtesy of goals from Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kingston Nkhatha.
  • Wits and Chiefs were drawn to face each other in the semifinals of the Nedbank Cup, ensuring two clashes between the pair in less than a month.
  • At the same point last season, Wits were 14 points worse off, sitting 7th in the standings, while Chiefs were at the top of the table, having claimed the exact same amount of points as this season (55).
