Preview - Maritzburg v Celtic
Maritzburg United come up against a wounded Bloemfontein Celtic side in a Castle Premiership match at Harry Gwala Stadium on Wednesday evening (kick-off 8pm).
Maritzburg will look to recover against an inconsistent Celtic side after they [United] drew 0-0 with Santos on Friday evening.
The 'Team of Choice' Media Liaison Officer, Senzo Msimang, spoke to the official PSL website and said: "The result against Santos was a positive one."
"We came out of a bad patch, as we changed coaches twice in a space of a week, especially after Steve Khompela's unexpected resignation," he explained.
"We managed to keep a clean sheet against Santos," continued Msimang. "We have been complaining about our defence's inability to handle pressure as we continuously conceded goals."
Meanwhile, Celtic have been blowing hot and cold this season, overcoming strong opposition and conceding important points against weaker teams.
The Bloemfontein-based side lost their last league encounter 1-0 to Benoni Premier United on Sunday afternoon.
The defeat left coach Antonio de Nobrega with a bitter pill to swallow as he vented his frustrations in his regular column on the official Celtic website.
"We are obviously disappointed with our result," said De Nobrega. "It just goes to show that there are no easy games in the PSL."
De Nobrega maintains that he is pleased with the player's contribution as the loss was not entirely their fault.
"Some of the players coming from injury are not match-fit," the Celtic mentor explained. "We were forced to use them due to our injury crisis."
"We hope to bounce back in our next match against Maritzburg United away, which will also be a tough game without a fully-fit squad."
Celtic's Team manager Khumbulani Konco confirmed with the official PSL website that Lebohang Kukame, Ntokozo Skhakhane and Timothy Batabaire are all out injured.
