Bloem Celtic v Maritzburg United

Bloemfontein Celtic will be aiming to consolidate their number one position on the Premiership table when they welcome struggling Maritzburg United to the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.

Siwelele have been in scintillating form this season, winning four out of five games and drawing the other one to sit alongside Bidvest Wits at the summit.

Their representation on the table contrasts with what it is going behind the scenes at the club, where financial troubles have left most players and even coaching staff with late payment for the last few months.

Some are reportedly working for free and their position has left Maritzburg coach Fadlu Davids amazed.

"Steve Komphela and his team deserve massive praise for what they are doing at Celtic," he said. "Really he has waived a magic wand at the club because to not be paid and to still get results is an amazing achievement."

Siphesihle Ndlovu is suspended for United, while Keagan Buchanan is on the long-term casualty list.

Celtic have not reported any fresh injuries.
