Celtic head coach Lehlohonolo Seema made four changes, with Ryan De Jongh Andile Fikizolo and Aviwe Nyamende all getting rare starts with the exception of Lucky Baloyi who returned to the line-up.

Phunya Sele Sele were coming off a 3-2 loss to Bidvest Wits in midweek while the Chilli Boys had a week's rest since their goalless draw with Maritzburg United last Sunday.

The opening exchanges could not produce clear openings but Silas Maziya came close to breaking the deadlock for Chippa in the 22nd minute with a long range strike that forced Siwelele goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane to tip over crossbar.

Mapeza's troops were creating chances after the half-hour mark but Mabokgwane played a big role in keeping Celtic in the game as  the sides went to the break without goals.

Celtic had a bright start in the second stanza as Ndumiso Mabena finally broke the deadlock three minutes from the break with his fifth legue goal of the season.

However, Seema's men conceded a penalty four minutes before the hour-mark, which allowed Twala to step up and convert from 12-yards out.

Chances were hard to come by after that and despite the late flurry of changes from both sides, neither could break the deadlock as the encounter ended all square.

Here's how they lined up:

Celtic: 16. Mabokgwane, 18. Mashikinya, 26, Nyamende, 35. Baloyi, 10. Mabena, 28. Khasipe, 50. Masuku, 13. Luthuli, 34. Fikizolo, 3. Mahashe, 20. De Jongh.

Subs: 31. Chaine, 21. Letsoalo, 9. Sera, 27. Tchilimbou, 12. Maema, 2. Tani, 5. Letalbika.

Chippa: 34. Mothwa, 22. Modisane, 2. Mthethwa, 20. Moyo, 12. Malepe, 13. Maphangule, 33. Mohola, 11. Maziya, 8. Rakhale, 40. Twala, 15. Kwem.

Subs: 1. Mazibuko, 21. Maphanga, 47. Nsabiyumva, 26. Sekotlong, 17. Damons, 44. Komane, 32. Lentjies.
