Starting XI: Chippa v Celtic

DStv Premiership 

Teams: Chippa United v Bloemfontein Celtic

Date: 18 May 2021

Venue: Sisa Dukashe Stadium

Relegation-threatened Chippa United will be targeting maximum points when Bloemfontein Celtic make the trip to Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Tuesday.

The match gets underway at 17h00.

The Chilli Boys find themselves in a precarious position in the Premiership standings, sitting second from bottom with three fixtures remaining in the campaign.

Vladislav Heric's men played to a disappointing goalless draw with bottom-of-the-table Black Leopards last Wednesday, having suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of TTM in the Nedbank Cup final the week before.

However, they did manage to claim the scalps of Kaizer Chiefs and Stellenbosch FC in their two league fixtures prior to the cup defeat, and Heric will be hoping for a repeat of those two performances in Mdantsane on Tuesday.

Siwelele have been drifting closer to the dreaded drop zone in recent weeks, having recorded four draws and one defeat.

Their most recent result, a goalless draw at home to Cape Town City last Wednesday, leaves them just three points clear of 15th-placed Chippa.

Here's how they line up:

Chippa: 30. Watenga, 32. Mobbie, 47. Nsabiyumva, 10. Mdlinzo, 18. Mthethwa, 4. Hanaumb, 5. Lentjies, 35. Sibeko, 8. Maloisane, 9. Eva Nga, 28. Lebitso.

Subs: 16. Mtshali, 13. Mokhele, 17. Damons, 23. Nomandela, 42. Manyisa, 2. Konqobe, 44. Nhlapo, 38. Msane, 15. Kwem.

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 35. Baloyi, 22. Rikhotso, 24. Lingwati, 26. Ngobeni, 18. Mashikinya, 5. Kobedi, 12. Maema, 11. Potsane, 10. Mabena, 24. Tchilimbou.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 3. Mahashe, 33. Chabalala, 13. Luthuli, 8. Phalane, 42. Ncobeni, 20. De Jongh, 14. Njoti, 9. Sera.
