Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic will welcome SuperSport United to the Free State Stadium on Wednesday as the battle for the Premiership's top eight heats up.

Phunya Sele Sele have raised more than a few eyebrows at the weekend after seeing off third-placed Bidvest Wits 1-0 as Clinton Larsen's men climbed to sixth in the standings.

The Free State outfit will now host a SuperSport side, who have proved largely inconsistent this season having followed up their 2-0 win over leaders Kaizer Chiefs with back-to-back defeats, most recently against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

That form has left Gordon Igesund's side ninth in the table, although they sit just two points outside of the top eight with nine games remaining this term.

In team news, neither side have any suspension concerns to deal with, although Celtic have no fewer than three players walking the yellow-card tightrope, namely Kenoshi Motshegwa, Lerato Lamola and Mogogi Gabonamong.

The situation is slightly trickier for Matsatsantsa, who have Daine Klate, Lebogang Manyama, Tamsanqa Teyise, Thabo Moloi and Thuso Phala all on three bookings apiece, meaning they are one yellow away from picking up potential bans.
