The Brazilians kept their title chances alive with back-to-back league victories after thrashing Chippa United 3-0 last Saturday, but they sit third in the standings after Orlando Pirates defeated Black Leopards on Sunday.

Chiefs’ loss to Maritzburg United over the weekend has given Masandawana a big opportunity to close the gap between the sides to just four points.

Meanwhile, Siwelele are winless in their last three Absa Premiership matches and will be looking to bounce back after a 2-0 defeat to Highlands Park last Saturday.

As a result, Celtic dropped out of the top eight and find themselves in 10th spot, although victory this evening would see the side move to within a point of eighth-placed Highlands Park.
