Wits move top with Baroka scalp

Bidvest Wits moved to the top of the Absa Premiership table with a 2-1 win over Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

With the Telkom Knockout semi-final defeat still fresh in their minds, Wits were out to avenge that particular defeat and started by attacking with numbers.

Their first chance at goal inside the opening 10 minutes after Gabadinho Mhango found space on the left to cut into the box before getting a shot away which found the side-netting.

Baroka were not too overawed and found a few spaces behind the Students defence with a few of their penetrative passes, but their front-men were unable to capitalise.

There was to be another good chance falling in the path of Wits after the earlier pressure from Baroka, as a long ball from Deon Hotto found Mhango who failed to keep his effort on target.

Baroka’s first shot on target was presented by Jemondre Dickens who turned to get a low effort away following a pass from midfield but Keet was able to get down to make the save.

On the stroke of halftime, Wits broke free through Lehlohonolo Majoro’s clinical finish that left Elvis Chipezeze with no chance.

Baroka were hoping to get a quick response in the second half, but a header from Dickens was only able to find the side-netting in the opening five minutes.
