Starting XI: Celtic v Pirates

Absa Premiership 
 
Teams: Bloemfontein Celtic v Orlando Pirates
 
Date: 10 May 2017
 
Venue: Dr. Molemela Stadium
 
Orlando Pirates continue their charge for a top eight spot in the Absa Premiership when they host Bloemfontein Celtic.
 
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
 
Pirates will be hoping for a return to winning ways after they suffered a 2-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend.
 
Kjell Jonevret's charges sit in 10th spot at present but will move up to eighth with a victory this evening.
 
Celtic, meanwhile, have hit a bit of a slump recently, as they have failed to win their last five league encounters, recording four draws and a loss.
 
The Free State outfit sit four points above the drop zone in 12th spot and victory tonight can secure their top flight status.
 
When these two sides met earlier in the campaign, second-half goals from Lantshane Phalane and Mbhazima Rikhotso saw Celtic come from behind to secure a 2-1 win at Orlando Stadium.
 
 
Here's how they line up:
 
Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 4. Nyatama, 6. Maruping, 27. Ndengane, 7. Lakay, 3. Dube, 5. Letlabika, Abdoul, 11. Hotto, 25. Lebri, 26. Dlamini.
 
Pirates: 16. Mabokgwane, 45. Mobara, 4. Jele, 8. Matlaba, 36. Van Heerden, 18. Sarr, 20. Manyisa, 25. Rakhale, 35. Wome, 5. Makola, 7. Ndoro.
