JOHANNESBURG - Bidvest Wits cruised into the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout with a 3-0 win over Moroka Swallows at the Bidvest Stadium last night.

Goals from Jabulani Shongwe, Buhle Mkhwanazi and Vincent Pule saw Gavin Hunt's team become the first team into the last eight.

Swallows' coach, Zeca Marques, brought on Lerato Chabangu and new signing, Thaigo dos Santos, with the hope of getting themselves back in the game in the second half.

The Clever Boys saw out the rest match with relative ease, while goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs didn't have a single save to make in the second half.
