Preview - Wits v Cosmos


BidVest Wits will be looking to maintain their long-time unbeaten record at home when they take on Jomo Cosmos in a Castle Premiership match at Millpark Stadium on Sunday (kick-off 3.45pm).

"We have never lost an official match at home since last season and this has instilled a sense of encouragement among the players," Wits manager George Mogotsi told The Sowetan this week.

He added: "We have reached a crucial stage of the league and we want to try hard not to lose, especially at home.

"Cosmos are a very formidable team and we expect them to throw everything at us for a win. They will not be demoralised by the fact that they are no longer with [Chris] Katongo.

"They have players such as Anthony Laffor and Dikgang Mabalane who are capable of scoring. But we also have players who are worth their salt and I'm positive they will manage to stand up and be counted on the day."

Meanwhile, Cosmos team manager Andrew Rabutla believes they have enough players to fill the gap left by the departing Katongo, who has been sold to Brondby, in Denmark.

"We have the likes of Calvin Kadi, Lethola Mofokeng and Bonginkosi Macala who are capable of scoring," said Rabutla.

"We respect Wits and I can't say we will beat them. This is going to be a tough match for both teams, though."
