Bidvest Wits’ Absa Premiership title hopes are all but gone after they were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man SuperSport United at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday evening.
The result saw the Clever Boys move back into third place on the log, but they are five points adrift of leaders Orlando Pirates with just two rounds of the season remaining. Matsatsantsa, meanwhile, remain in sixth spot.
The teams will return to league action next Saturday, May 4, with SuperSport away to Maritzburg United and Wits at home to Baroka FC.
