Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic will look to claim a hat-trick of Absa Premiership wins when they host Jomo Cosmos at Free State Stadium.

Celtic claimed a second successive league win when they beat Maritzburg United 2-0 away on September 12.

The Bloemfontein side has claimed four points from two home matches so far this season.

Phunya Sele Sele are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with seven points from four matches.

Cosmos are yet to win a match this season and suffered their first loss when they were beaten 2-1 at home by Platinum Stars on September 13.

The Vaal-based side’s two previous away matches both ended in goalless draws.

Ezenkosi are placed 13th on the Absa Premiership log with three points from four matches.

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and Cosmos have met in 43 league matches since 1985.

Ezenkosi have 18 wins compared to 15 for Phunya Sele Sele, while 10 matches have been drawn.

Celtic have won six of their 21 home matches against Cosmos, suffering eight defeats in the process.

When the teams last met in 2011/12, Phunya Sele Sele claimed a league ‘double’ by winning 3-1 at home and 2-1 away.

Cosmos have not beaten Celtic in a league match since the first half of the 2006/07 season.

Kick-off at 17:00 on Thursday, September 24.
