Starting XI: Black Aces v Celtic

ABSA Premiership

Teams: Mpumalanga Black Aces v Bloemfontein Celtic

Date: 25 September 2013

Venue: Mbombela Stadium


Mpumalanga Black Aces will host Bloemfontein Celtic this evening in a PSL clash at the Mbombela Stadium.

Both teams will be looking to move up the table, with Celtic currently in 11th place with five points, and Black Aces one spot back in the 12th place, with four points.

Black Aces lost to Maritzburg United this past weekend, while Celtic drew with Kaizer Chiefs in their last game, which was a mid-week encounter eight days ago.

With tough Telkom Cup assignments for both teams in their next fixtures, Celtic play Mamelodi Sundowns while Aces will meet Orlando Pirates, victory tonight could help their momentum.

Having met 28 times in the past, Phunya Sele Sele are slightly ahead in wins, with eleven compared to the nine wins for AmaZayoni. There have been eight draws.

The last time they met, when Black Aces were last in the PSL in the 2010/11 season, Celtic won both clashes.

AmaZayoni will be missing Sandile Zuke this evening, after he received a red card in their game on the weekend.

In other team news, Former Phunya Sele Sele and Orlando Pirates midfielder Mark Mayambela is on the bench, and could be set to make his debut for Aces tonight.
