Students Target back-to-back Wins.


Bidvest Wits will go in search of back-to-back Absa Premiership wins for the first time this season when they host Golden Arrows at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday, 6 October 2012, kick-off at 15h30.

The Students ended Maritzburg United’s unbeaten record with a 1-0 win at Harry Gwala Stadium last Friday, their second league victory of the season.

The Clever Boys are placed ninth on the Absa Premiership log with eight points from six matches. Arrows drew 0-0 at home to Black Leopards on the weekend, extending their unbeaten run to fourmatches.

The Durban side has won just once this season and will be looking to claim a second three-pointer as soon as they can. Abafana Bes’thende are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with six points from as many matches.

In head-to-head stats, Bidvest Wits and Golden Arrows have met in 20 league matches since 2001/02. The Clever Boys have 10 wins compared to four for the Durban side, while six matches have ended in draws.

Wits have a good home record against Arrows, with six wins, three draws and just one defeat from 10 matches. Last season the teams played to draws in both of their league meetings: 2-2 in Johannesburg, 1-1 in Durban.

The Clever Boys have not lost a league match to Arrows since the 2008/09 season.
