Wasteful Celtic Held By Dikwena

Absa Premiership 
 
Result Platinum Stars 0-0 Bloemfontein Celtic
 
Date: 31 August 2014
 
Venue: Royal Bafokeng Stadium
 
Bloemfontein Celtic failed to convert numerous chances in the second half, as they were held to a 0-0 draw with Platinum Stars in a Absa Premiership clash at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium. 
 
The first half proved to a dull affair, as both sides lacked the urgency to and get opener.
 
While, Dikwena's Lucky Nguzana tested Patrick Tingyemb with a long range effort early on.
 
Patrick Malokase came close to opening the scoring a minute after the restart, with a  free-kick that flew inches wide of the upright.
 
Celtic should have went ahead in the 52nd minute, but a last ditch tackle from Gift Sithole prevented Celtic a certain goal.
 
The visitors then came close again four minutes later, as Joel Mogorosi picked out Tumelo Mogapi at the back post, but the winger' half volley sailed inches over the crossbar.
 
It was Celtic in the second half, and they went close again as Musa Nyatama's side-foot effort from the edge of the area went just wide of the upright.
 
Celtic had to finish the game without their manager, Ernst Middendorp, after he was sent to the stands.
 
Both Dikwena and Phunya Sele Sele remain unchanged in the league stadings in eigth and ninth respectively.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Platinum Stars: Dambe, Mere, Gumede, Mpeta, Semenya, Madubanya, Mathe, Msomi, Nguzana, Mabena, Malokase
 
Bloemfontein Celtic: Tignyemb, Fransman, Ndengane, Mogapi, Ntanga, Ritchie, Letlabika, Bilankulu, Nyatama, Lamola, Mhango
