Bidvest Wits midfielder Ben Motshwari says winning a trophy this season would be a bonus for him and his team after enjoying a splendid performance this campaign.

Motshwari has been one of the outstanding performers at Wits, helping the team to narrow the league points gap to just four from leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who are on 52 points. And they are also in the running for the Nedbank Cup having made the last 16.

“I think we deserve something to show for our efforts this season,” said Motshwari. “We have been playing very well and getting both (league and Nedbank Cup), or even one trophy this season will be a big bonus for us.

“Playing beautiful football the whole campaign and not showing something for it by the end of the season counts for nothing, but we are soldiers, we will take it one game at a time and see what happens along the way.”

The Clever Boys will be aiming for a spot for the last eight of the competition when they take on ABC Motsepe League side Magesi FC tonight at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

And Motshwari, who is looking for his first silverware at the Johannesburg club, says they have no idea what kind of a team Magesi are, but judging by his third division experience – having played for Trabzon FC three years ago – the Limpopo side will come very hard at them.

“Clubs in the third division have very quick and young players. So, I am anticipating a fast match and of course they will be very motivated to win the game since they will be playing against a Premiership side.”
