Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic will look to end their winless run in the Absa Premiership when they host Black Aces at Free State Stadium.

Celtic saw their winless streak extended to four matches when they drew 1-1 at SuperSport United on November 4.

The Bloemfontein side has claimed seven points from four home matches this season.

Phunya Sele Sele are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with 16 points from 10 matches.

Aces snapped their winless streak in the league with a 3-1 win over Jomo Cosmos on November 3.

The Mpumalanga side has claimed seven points from five away matches this season.

AmaZayoni are placed third on the Absa Premiership log with 18 points from 10 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and Aces have met in 32 league matches since 1985.

Phunya Sele Sele have 13 wins compared to nine for AmaZayoni, while 10 matches have been drawn.

Celtic have won seven of their 16 home matches against Aces, suffering three defeats in the process.

Last season Phunya Sele Sele took four points off AmaZayoni, drawing 1-1 in Bloemfontein before a 2-0 win in the return game in Mpumalanga.

Aces have not beaten Celtic in the top flight league since way back in 1995.

Kick-off is at 15:30 on Saturday, November 22.
