Celtic vs Pirates In Numbers

Absa Premiership Round 2 – Bloemfontein Celtic vs. Orlando Pirates
 
Date: 13 August 2014
 
Time: 19:30
 
Venue: Free State Stadium
 
Bloemfontein Celtic could only manage a 1-1 draw in their last fixture against Mpumalanga Black Aces at home, but have now switched their focus to the visiting Orlando Pirates. The last time these two sides met in a league encounter, Siwelele ran out 1-0 victors last season, and will once again look to add to Bucs’ bad start to the season when they were defeated 2-1 in last weekend’s encounter by Soweto neighbours, Moroka Swalllows.
