Starting XI: Maritzburg v Celtic

Absa Premiership Starting XI

Teams: Maritzburg United v Bloemfontein Celtic

Date: 12 September 2015

Venue: Harry Gwala Stadium

Maritzburg United will be aiming for nothing less than maximum points when they host a firing Bloemfontein Celtic side at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday evening.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h15.

Mandla Ncikazi’s men are yet to register a victory this season, with a solitary point that they earned with a dull goalless draw when they took on top-flight returnees in Jomo Cosmos.

On the other hand, Bloemfontein Celtic are in high spirits after securing a 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates before the international break.

The Team of Choice will be silently confident going into the encounter with recent history backing the Pietermaritzburg-based outfit to have the upper hand. In the last five league clashes between the two sides, United have won two, with three of them ending in draws.

Siwelele last won against Maritzburg United in the 2010/11 season after Olomu and Spandeel grabbed the two goals that downed this evening’s hosts.

Here's how they line-up:

Maritzburg United:  Vries, Teyise, De Jongh, Mngonyama, Mekoa M, Zulu, Mkhize, Lentjies, Cele, Shai and Mokate.

Bloemfontein Celtic: Tignyemb, Fransman, Ndengane, Letlabika, Bilankulu, Mogapi, Ntanga, Lakay, Pelembe, Morena, Nyatama.
