Teams: Polokwane City v Bloemfontein Celtic
Date: 19 November 2017
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
Bernard Molekwa’s Polokwane City will be looking to continue their best ever domestic cup run when they host Bloemfontein Celtic in a Telkom Knockout semi-final clash.
Rise and Shine as City have been grinding out some important results in recent weeks, with the most notable one being the one that led them to this fixture.
The men from Polokwane overcame a stern challenge from Orlando Pirates, as they won a nervy penalty shoot-out to mark their deepest cup run in their history.
Celtic, meanwhile, are enjoying a very good start to their season and could be slight favourites coming into this clash.
Siwelele showed their fighting spirit as they came from a goal down to defeat Platinum Stars away from home, in what was an impressive turnaround which saw Multichoice Diski Challenge star man Tshegofatso Mabaso, score the winner in the last round.
Veselin Jelusic’s charges will be wary of the threat posed by Rodney Ramagalela and will have to keep a close eye on him to increase their chances of coming away with a victory.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 15:30.
Here's how they line up:
Polokwane: 1. Chigova, 2 Semenya, 19 Ravhuhali, 22. Mbonani, 5. Maponyane, 21. Seabi, 29. Musona, 20. Phiri, 17. Ramagalela, 8. J. Maluleka, 35. Ndou.
Celtic: 30. Tignyemb, 3. Pfumbidzai, 22. Rikhotso, 27. Ndengane, 10. Mabena, 12. Mahlasela, 5. Letlabika, 35. Baloyi, 7. Hotto, 45. Nyundu, 8. Phalane.
