Go For Bilankulu!

With Mogogi Gabonamong out suspended for Bloemfontein Celtic’s fixture against Platinum Stars on Sunday, Ernst Middendorp is facing a little headache.

The Botswana international has been key for the club since he was snapped up from SuperSport United in January, where he was not getting regular game time. Not only does he protect the back four, but he is also useful in set-piece situations. To prove this, he scored against Witbank Spurs in the Nedbank Cup, helping to take the club to the quarterfinals.

Middendorp will have to tweak his starting line-up a bit, but he should look no further than Musa Bilankulu to solve his dilemma. The steely defender, who also joined Celtic in January, on loan from Wits, can fill the gap perfectly. He has played most of his career in defence, but proved in his last season at Golden Arrows that he can do an equally impressive job in midfield.

That means Clayton Daniels and young Alfred Ndengane should be the central defensive pairing to thwart the efforts of the likes of Siphelele Mthembu and Mduduzi Nyanda, while Bilankulu will be the link-up man between defence and attack.

This just goes to show that Phunya Sele Sele are not a one-man team. We are going for a win at home!
