Wits pile more misery on Leopards


Bidvest Wits midfielder Terrence Dzvukamanja added to Allan Clark’s problems as his first-half goal sealed a 1-0 victory over woeful Black Leopards on Tuesday evening at the Bidvest Stadium.

Having failed to win their last three home games, Wits returned to winning ways and moved within ten points of log leaders Kaizer Chiefs in sixth place.

While Leopards are rooted at the bottom of the log standings, flirting with relegation as they suffered their eighth successive defeat in Absa Premiership away games for the first time in their PSL history.

According to Opta Jabu, It’s the worst away run by any side since Jomo Cosmos in 2015 (9) – Homesick.

The Limpopo based side is three points away from safety.
