Both players have not been threatened at all for the number one jersey at club level and they have high hopes of starting when Bafana take on Libya in the final Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Sfax, in Itumeleng Khune’s absence.
Keet has played in all of Wits’ Absa Premiership matches this season (24), keeping Brighton Mhlongo and Ricardo Goss on the bench. In cup matches, Keet has played three matches. Williams has also played all of SuperSport matches this league season, while he has made seven appearances in cup competitions.
Despite Wits being title contenders, Keet will not be happy with the fact that he has conceded 25 goals this season. That’s more than the matches he has played, which does not make for good reading when it comes to match day selection for Bafana Bafana. Williams has conceded 21 goals in the league.
Williams has an edge when it comes to clean sheets in league matches. The 27-year-old has kept 10 clean sheets, while Keet has nine.
In nine matches played in 2019, Williams has kept just three clean sheets, all of which have come in the last five games. Keet, meanwhile, has kept just one clean sheet in 2019, in a 1-0 victory over Maritzburg United in February. He has conceded 10 goals in the last five games. Williams is definitely in better form going into the Libya game and could start.
