Bidvest Wits keeper Josephs braced for make-or-break clash with Orlando Pirates

The Students will be looking to stretch their lead at the top of the log when they welcome the Buccaneers on Thursday night

Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs believes it’s crucial to rack up another win when they face Orlando Pirates.

“What I do see is that it’s the biggest game of our lives coming up on Thursday,” Josephs told the media.

Josephs, who won back-to-back trebles with Bucs between 2010 and 2012, admits they are not depending on anybody to help them edge closer to the league title.

The Students top the standings with 51 points, one ahead of second-placed Sundowns.

“We just have to remain calm. It’s still anybody’s game but as long as we’re focused on our game, do what we have to do, pick up the points that we need to pick up, we stand a good chance,”  he said.

“We’re not depending on anybody. So, the next game is the biggest of our lives,” Josephs continued.

“With Orlando Pirates coming on a kind of good run as well, it’s going to be another humdinger, but these are the kind of games you want to be playing; against the big teams,” Josephs concluded.
