Starting XI: Wits v Celtic

Absa Premiership Starting XI: Bidvest Wits v Bloemfontein Celtic

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 19, 2018 06:51 PM

Absa Premiership

Teams: Bidvest Wits v Bloemfontein Celtic

Venue: Bidvest Stadium

Date: 19 January 2018

Struggling defending Absa Premiership champions Bidvest Wits will be looking to continue their newfound momentum when they host Bloemfontein Celtic at the Bidvest Stadium on Friday.

View The PSL Table

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.

The Clever Boys have had a dismal 2017/18 campaign and languish dangerously near the foot of the table. However, they have picked up four points in their last two games — a 2-0 win over SuperSport United and a 1-1 draw with Chippa United.

Meanwhile, Siwelele will be looking to recover from a dismal 4-0 defeat to Maritzburg United.

It’s far from all doom and gloom for the Free State outfit, though. A win in Friday’s game would see them move level on points with fourth-placed Kaizer Chiefs.

This has been a notably tight Absa Premiership season and plenty is at stake for both sides:

Celtic will be looking to keep pace with the leading pack and avoid falling into a slump, while Wits will not only be playing for pride, but also frantically looking over their shoulders in the scrap at the bottom of the log.

Here's how they line up:

Wits: 1. Keet, 3. Hlatshwayo, 4. Khumalo, 12. Pule, 13. Hlanti, 14. Claasen, 15. Mkhwanazi, 23. Myeni, 25. Gyimah, 28. Keene, 41. Majoro.

Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 3. Pfumbidzai, 22. Rikhotso, 27. Ndengane, 6. Maruping, 17. Mabasa, 25. Gordinho, 35. Baloyi, 7. Hotto, 18. Mashikinya, 8. Phalane.

@Lacostemsn, Polokwane City desperately need points to move away from danger zone,that is important. As for Baroka facing other soweto flops, they should have no problem in collecting maximum points there.

Polokwane City have a real chance of redeeming themselves at the expense of Bucs today, while Baroka are set to see through fau tomorrow. The two Limpopo based teams will have no problem dealing with the so-called soweto giants this weekend.
