Bucs vs Wits clash a ‘sordid’ affair

Hunt will rely on his attacking striker Gift Motupa to dismantle Bucs defence.

Currently, Bucs are tied on 41 points with Wits but hold second position in the standings due to a superior goal difference.

Motupa, who has been banging goals for his outfit, has urged his teammates to pull up their socks against Pirates.

“I think we just need to be a little bit more consistent and we will come alright.

“The way we have been allowing games to slip from our fingers has not been good,” Motupa said.

“This is an important time in the title race. We just need to work even harder and improve our performance.”

Motupa has been the standout performer for the university side in the past five league games where they have lost three, drew one and won one.

In those five games, the 24-year-old has scored in all but one game and has subsequently taken his tally to nine league goals so far this season.

“In as much as I am happy with my performance, it means nothing if the team is not winning,” he said.

“I will try my best to help the team to get the results that we want. I feel I can do more and do much better to ensure that we get the results.”

Meanwhile, Bidvest Wits captain Thulani Hlatshwayo is available after serving a one-match ban.

Pirates will also welcome back winger Vincent Pule, but will be without forward Thembinkosi Lorch, who is suspended.

Luvuyo Memela could also miss the match because of a thigh injury.

The game kicks off at 15:00
