The game is set to kick off at 3-30pm and sees the Clever Boys out for a second successive league win following their much-needed 2-0 victory over SuperSport United in midweek.
That victory was however not enough to launch Wits out of the drop zone as they remain 15th, but just a point behind Platinum Stars and 13th-placed AmaZulu.
Wits coach Gavin Hunt was pleased to see his side taking their chances for a change against SuperSport, although he points out they can’t get ahead of themselves after one win.
“I have been in South African football since 1980 as a player and a coach and I have never seen a team miss chances like I have seen this year. If we were converting our chances we’d be top of the league.
“We have only won one game, so I can’t say we have turned the corner. Let’s win a couple of games and we will see,” said Hunt.
The Johannesburg team will be without the suspended Bongani Khumalo, one of their goal-scorers against Matsatsantsa.
Chippa meanwhile ended a run of two consecutive defeats by recording a 2-0 win away at AmaZulu last weekend and they have ambitions of their own, currently lying seventh and a not-too-distant nine points behind league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
They have made several signings in the transfer window, including a loan deal for Orlando Pirates winger Thabo Rakhale, who is out to impress coach Teboho Moloi.
“It is a great feeling to be reuniting with coach ‘Tebza’. He knows what I’m capable of.
“He always pushes me, always makes sure that I perform to the best of my ability. When coach Tebza was at Pirates, I was consistent in my performances.
“He also promised to bring me back to that form that I use to show before. I’m happy to be at Chippa and I want to contribute to the team’s performances,” he said.
