It’s second versus third in the PSL title race as Bidvest Wits host Orlando Pirates at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The two sides are tied on 41 points, with the Buccaneers enjoying a slight edge in terms of goal difference.

The Soweto giants will be hoping to pull away from their opponents, who are likely to be handed a boost in their chase for a second league title, following a ruling handed out against log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Another boost for the hosts comes in the form of personnel, as they are set to welcome back skipper Thulani Hlatshwayo, who returns having served a two-match ssuspension.

It’s, however, contrasting fortunes for the Buccaneers, who will have to do without the services of winger Thembinkosi Lorch, who has been suspended for the clash after picking up a fourth yellow card for the season in Monday night’s goalless draw against Sundowns.

In addition to Lorch’s absence, the medical team is assessing injuries sustained by two more key players in goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands and midfielder Luvuyo Memela, who both had to be substituted against the Brazilians.

Despite those potential losses, coach Milutin Sredojevic said there was a lot gained ahead of yet another crunch encounter.

“We believe in other tactical aspects that we have dominated, but the missing factor was exactly that goal that would give us extra profit. But at least we gained mental profit, having outplayed our respected opponents and a very well-coached team,” Sredojevic said after the match.

The Serb said Monday’s performance would drive his charges to continue where they left off as they prepare to square off against the Clever Boys.
