Bidvest Wits coach Gavin Hunt stated that they will go out to Mbombela with the same intentions as Downs and that is to win the cup. He explained that the club doesn’t have a great history in winning cups and this might be the best opportunity to start winning trophies and how about they start with the Wafa Wafa Cup tomorrow afternoon. The coach stated that he is expecting a high intense game as they will be facing a strong team that has been doing well for the last 2 to 3 season and his players know what to expect from the match as they look to cause an upset to the Downs fans. He furthermore explained that it will be good to assess him team as to how much they have improved after losing out of the ABSA Premiership by 14 points and stressed his frustration on the build up to the cup final after his side last been in a competitive match 11 days ago. The Students game against Orlando Pirates last weekend was abundant due to security reasons after the #feesmustfall debacle at Wits University close by where the match was scheduled but they looking forward to the final and are honored to be part of the MTN8 Wafa-Wafa final.
