Wits, Santos play out to dull draw 06/04/05
Wits University and Santos showed why they are both in relegation trouble as they played out to a dull goal-less draw at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday night.

To add insult to the small crowd at the Bidvest Stadium, both sides were guilty of missing several opportunities that could have livened up the match.

Of the little action that was dished up on the night, nearly all of it arrived in the first half.

In the 15th minute Carlo Scott missed a sitter for the Cape side when he shot straight at Wayne Roberts in a one-on-one situation.

Ten minutes later Robert Nauseb headed tamely at Roberts after a cross from Marawaan Banta.

In the 31st minute Simon Makhubela of Wits fired a powerful shot on the turn at the Santos goal. Brendan Wardle did well to block the initial effort and then saved Alois Bunjira's follow-up shot as well.

The second half deteriorated into a midfield battle, with neither side showing much in the way of creativity in the final third of the field.

The result sees the People's Team move up into 13th spot on the league table, while Wits go 11th.
