Teams: Bloemfontein Celtic v Bidvest Wits
Date: 27 August 2020
Venue: Absa Tuks Stadium
Bidvest Wits do battle with Bloemfontein Celtic in the Absa Premiership on Thursday afternoon at ABSA Tuks Stadium.
The Clever Boys are yet to lose a league match in the bio-bubble, as they enter today's clash on the back a five-match unbeaten streak.
However, coach Gavin Hunt will be concerned that the common result in that run has been a goalless draw, the last of which was against the Team of Choice on Monday.
Wits are still mathematically in the race for the title, lying fourth on the log , eight points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs, whom they play against in their upcoming fixture on Sunday.
Similarly, Celtic are also unbeaten since the restart after four matches, including their Nedbank Cup semi-final victory over Baroka FC.
Siwelele have won one and drawn two of their three league matches so far, the last of which was a 2-2 result against AmaZulu on Monday.
John Maduka's charges sit in tenth spot on the log, one point adrift of eighth-placed Highlands Park and are left with four matches to achieve their objective of a top-half finish.
Wits will be hoping to complete a league double over Celtic after winning the first-round clash 3-2 in January this year at Bidvest Stadium.
