Bidvest Wits climbed back to the top of the Absa Premiership log standings following a goalless draw with Chippa United at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium in Mdantsane on Tuesday evening.

Gavin Hunt's troops finding themselves back at the summit of the league; jumping above Cape Town City on goal-difference. SuperSport United remain third following a 1-1 draw at Orlando Pirates.

The Chilli Boys showed early intent with Dan Malesela firmly in the Eastern Cape outfit's thoughts. 'Dance' was admitted to hospital on Sunday after complaing of chest pains.

But, despite goalmouth action at either end of the pitch there would be no change to the score-sheet at the interval.

Hunt introduced both Amajita starlet Phakamani Mahlambi and Eleazar Rodgers in the second stanza as he went in search of the winner, with Rhulani Manzini going close in added time for the hosts.

In the end, though, neither side were able to break the deadlock as they settled for a point apiece.
