Cape Town - Wits continued their good start to the new Absa Premiership season with a convincing 3-0 victory over AmaZulu at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday.

Wits got off to a flyer in front of their home fans as Gift Motupa rose above his marker to direct a header past Moeneeb Josephs from a fourth-minute corner.

The hosts went on to boss proceedings and almost scored again on 19 minutes when Mxolisi Macuphu raced onto a through-ball and fired wide of the target.

However, the second goal wasn't long in coming as Macuphu linked up well with Deon Hotto before producing a clinical finish from inside the box.

AmaZulu looked to respond with Mabhuti Khenyeza going close in the 31st minute, only to see Darren Keet pull off a superb save.

Wits took their two-goal lead into the break, but the visitors were a whisker away from pulling one back in the 51st minute when Siyethemba Sithebe's strike came back off the frame of the goal.

Cavin Johnson's troops threatened again the hour mark, although Jabulani Ncobeni failed to test Keet from a free-kick in a promising position.

Murray then put the game to bed 11 minutes after his introduction, with the substitute capping off a fine move by slotting past Josephs from inside the box.

The Clever Boys saw out the remaining 16 minutes without too much fuss as they made it four wins from five in the league this term.
