Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic are set to face Mpumalanga Black Aces in the second semifinal of the inaugural Maize Cup as they resume their hunt for trophies.
Both sides have been busy during the transfer or pre-season and will be expected to showcase their new recruits.
Looking at Siwelele, they have brought in the likes of Vuyisile Wana, Lantshene Phalane and Geoffrey Massa.
The club from the City of Roses have parted ways with Botswana internationals Mogogi Gabonamong and Joel Mogorosi, with ‘Gino’ joining Township Rollers, who are also playing in the Maize Cup.
Coached by Clinton Larsen, Siwelele will also aim to do well in the cup, with the CEO Khumbulani Konco saying they’ll take the tournament seriously.
“The Maize triangle comes at the right time for us. It falls in well with our pre-season so we will take this cup tournament very seriously heading into the 2015/2016 Premier Soccer League season," said Konco.
However, looking at the Witbank-based club, their media manager Gordon Masondo says the cup is already in the bag.
“We are ready for the next season, the boys are doing their best in training and are looking forward to the new season,” said Masondo.
“The Maize Cup is already in the bag, we’re just waiting for the day to a showcase everything and ensure we write our name on that trophy."
This encounter is scheduled to get underway at Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg and kicks-off at 12:00.
SABC is expected to show all the matches live.
