Starting XI: Swallows v Celtic

Absa Premiership

Teams: Moroka Swallows v Bloemfontein Celtic

Venue: Volkswagen Dobsonville Stadium

Date: 18 May 2012

 

Moroka Swallows and Bloemfontein Celtic will look to end the 2012/13 Absa Premiership season on a high when they meet at the Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday.

Swallows played to a goalless draw against SuperSport United in their last league outing, completing their away matches for the season.

The Soweto side has recorded six wins, three draws and five defeats from their 14 home matches this term.

The Birds are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 39 points from 29 matches.

Celtic saw their three-game winning streak ended when they were held 2-2 by regional rivals Free State Stars last weekend.

The Bloemfontein side has won just twice away from home this season, suffering seven defeats in the process.

Phunya Sele Sele are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with 41 points from 29 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Swallows and Celtic have met in 50 league matches since 1985.

The Birds have claimed 18 wins compared to 16 for Phunya Sele Sele, while 16 matches have been drawn.

Swallows have a solid home record against Celtic, with 12 wins and just four defeats from 24 matches.

When the teams met earlier this season in Bloemfontein, the home side won 2-1 thanks to goals from Manzini and Madubanya.

Here is how they line up

Swallows: Greg Etafia, Rudi Isaacs, Luvhengo Mungomeni, Roger Da Costa, Shere Lekgothoane, Lefa Tsutsulupa, Giorgi Nergadze, Katlego Mashego, Bennett Chenene, Felix Obada, Siyabonga Nomvethe
