About 30 witnesses are expected to give evidence in the trial of a Hamilton man accused of stabbing two men earlier this year.

Desmond Nathan has pleaded not guilty to two charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm in connection with the stabbing in Marshall St on February 23.

Nathan, 18, will stand trial in March next year. Nathan's two alleged victims, aged 16 and 18, were treated in hospital, with one suffering defensive cut wounds to his hands while the other was stabbed in his chest.
