Emile Baron suffered a broken leg and had to be stretchered off after a clash with Orlando Pirates striker, Ndumiso Mabena in the dying moments of their defeat at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday. This forced Wits to put, inexperienced 17-year-old Jethren Barr, into the poles as the last man standing.

Thabang Letheo: Since Gordon Igesund has taken over the reins of Bafana Bafana, there has been a distinct improvement in the side’s playing.
