Bidvest Wits 2-0 MUFC
26 August 2015
Maritzburg United will have to wait a little longer for their first league win this season after going down 2-0 to Bidvest Wits in Johannesburg on Wednesday night.
The home side enjoyed the better of the early exchanges and scored in the 32nd minute when New Zealander Kris Bright powered home a header from Daine Klate’s corner kick.
Maritzburg strikers Evans Rusike and Mohamed Anas were given very little opportunity as Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs remained untested.
The Students doubled their lead four minutes after the restart when Bright played in Sibusiso Vilakazi, who finished with a curling shot.
Anas nearly pulled a goal back with 15 minutes to go, but his effort from a tight angle hit the woodwork.
Lupeta did the same for the hosts when he was denied by the in the 81st minute.
Maritzburg are next in action on September 12, a league clash at home to Bloemfontein Celtic.
