Bidvest Wits will be looking to settle the score when they take on Platinum Stars in the second leg of the MTN 8 semi-final at the Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday night.

The Students lost 4-2 in the first leg played in Rustenburg over four weeks ago, and they will need to score two unanswered goals to make it 4-4 on aggregate and certainly progress to the final.

On the other hand, Dikwena will be aiming to spoil the party by scoring an early goal to increase the margin although they will also need to shut the back door.

Most games are won in the middle of the park, but the outcome of this encounter should be determined by the strikers from both sides.

Getaneh Kebede and Robin Ngalande have been scoring goals regularly for the Clever Boys recently, and Gavin Hunt will be looking to them for the two goals required on the night.

However, Stars have been sharp in front of goal with Siphelele Mthembu, Mogakolodi Ngele and Tintswalo Tshabalala all on the scoresheet for Dikwena in recent games.
