Starting XI: Celtic v Stellies

DStv Premiership 

Teams: Bloemfontein Celtic v Stellenbosch

Date: 16 January 2021

Venue: Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium

Bloemfontein Celtic will be searching for their first win in five matches when they host Stellenbosch FC in the DStv Premiership clash at Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium.

The match is set to kickstart at 15h30.

Celtic have been struggling in the league since competing in the CAF Confederation Cup, in some games having to split the squad into two groups when the fixtures are too close to each other.

As a result, Siwelele have gone four matches without a victory after losing 2-1 to SuperSport United on Wednesday and they dropped down to 11th on the log with nine points from ten matches.

On the other hand, Stellies maintained their solid start to the season with a three-match unbeaten streak after playing to a 1-1 draw with Black Leopards eight days ago.

The point against Lidoda Duvha moved Steve Barker's charges up to seventh on the table with 13 points from ten matches.

Celtic completed a league double over the Western Cape side last season, winning with a 2-1 scoreline twice, in fact Stellenbosch are yet to beat Phunya Sele Sele in the top flight.

Here's how they line up:

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 35. Baloyi, 33. Chabalala, 3. Mahashe, 22. Rikhotso, 15. Pfumbidzai, 8. Phalane, 18. Mashikinya, 21. Letsoalo, 10. Mabena, 13. Luthuli.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 19. Matjila, 5. Kobedi, 24. Lingwati, 34. Fikizolo, 9. Sera, 11. Potsane, 29. Ndwandwe, 50. Masuku.

Stellenbosch: 35. Langeveldt, 3. Brenner, 15. Bergman, 20. Robertson, 24. Macheke, 7. Van Rooyen, 18. Nange, 19. Sinkala, 23. Adams, 22. Skelem, 13. Dimgba.

Susb: 1. Stephens, 4. De Goede, 12. Scott, 29. Moon, 10. Mendieta, 14. Msengi, 5. Mthethwa, 32. Mbekile.
