Commentary
  • 90'

    There will be 5 minutes added on.

  • 90'

    GOAL! WITS! DZVUKAMANJA! 2-4. And there Wits catch Celtic on the counter to finish the game off.

  • 90'

    FULL TIME! 2-4. What a cracking game of football, especially the second half. Celtic led 1-0 at the break but Wits scored a quick-fire double to take the lead. Celtic equalised with 4 minutes to go but Wits then scored twice to finish the game off.

  • 88'

    GOAL! WITS! DZVUKAMANJA! 2-3. Dramatic scenes here as Wits regain the lead just a minute after conceding an equaliser.

  • 87'

    That might turn out to be a crucial header by Mabasa in terms of this match, the title race as well as the top 8 race.

  • 86'

    GOAL! CELTIC! MABASA! 2-2. Celtic have done it! Mabasa equalises, what a cracking second half this has been. I wouldn't bet against another goal in the final few minutes.

  • 83'

    Celtic are pushing players forward which is leaving them vulnerable to the Wits counter attack. Intriguing last few minutes we have ahead.

  • 81'

    YELLOW CARD! Mhango receives the third yellow card for the Clever Boys.

  • 80'

    SUB for Celtic - Letsoalo replaces for Maema.

  • 75'

    SUB for Celtic - Mabena comes on for Mashikinya as Celtic go in search of an equaliser.

  • 71'

    SUB for Celtic - Shikweni has replaced goal scorer, Potsane.

  • 70'

    SUB for Wits - Monare has come on for Mere.

  • 69'

    GOAL! WITS! MOTUPA! 1-2. Motupa heads Mhango's cross into the back of the net. They lead away from home. The comeback is complete...unless Celtic can get back into it.

  • 64'

    Celtic almost regain the lead but for a great save by Keet. The hosts have been under pressure since scoring but they are starting to find some inroads.

  • 60'

    SUB for Wits - Motupa on for Majoro

  • 60'

    Hotto straight into the action as his shot hits the crossbar. So close for Wits.

  • 59'

    Sub for Wits - Hotto comes on to replace Dzvukamanja.

  • 58'

    GOAL! WITS! MHANGO! 1-1. Eventually Wits manage to score past Tignyemb. They will now look to keep up the pressure they have built to claim victory. A great last 30 minutes await us.

  • 50'

    A slow start to the second half with no clear openings yet but Wits are once again dominating the ball.

  • 46'

    KICK OFF! 1-0. The second half is underway. Can Wits claw this one back and in so doing, claw back the title race? Time will tell.

  • 45'

    HALF TIME! 1-0. The hosts take their lead into the break after an early goal by Potsane. Wits have had the better of play and really should be level, if not leading. Perhaps the second half holds better cards for them.

  • 44'

    YELLOW CARD - the first yellow card goes to Nonyane for a poor challenge. There will be 1 minute added on.

  • 41'

    Wits have definitely been the better side in this first half but they have run into Tignyemb who is in top form tonight. They will need to find a way to beat him twice if they hope to keep their title challenge up.

  • 37'

    PENALTY MISSED! 1-0. It remains 1-0 to Celtic as Tignyemb pulls off the save from Ritchie's penalty. What a performance this is by the Celtic stopper.

  • 36'

    PENALTY to Wits! The visitors have continued to push and push for an equaliser and will hope they can now convert to level things up. Rikhotso brought down Mhango.

  • 30'

    Wits back on top as they get corner after corner but they have failed to make the pressure count as yet.

  • 26'

    Tignyemb makes another great save. Majoro and Dzvukamanja combine well to beat the Celtic defence but can't finish it off.

  • 22'

    Another chance for Wits goes wide! Majoro has a shot which is well saved but the follow-up by Scott is put wide too.

  • 20'

    Celtic probing as they search to double their lead but the final ball by Dlamini isn't good enough. Neat play though.

  • 15'

    The game has settled down over the last few minutes as Celtic start finding a grip in the game.

  • 11'

    Since the goal it has been all Wits who have created a couple of good scoring opportunities, but have failed to find the equaliser. All the momentum with the visitors at the moment.

  • 9'

    Ritchie now gets a cross in and it is once again Dzvukamanja on the end of it but it is well over the crossbar.

  • 8'

    Hlanti does well down the left flank and Tignyemb has to scramble at his near post to keep the hosts in the lead.

  • 5'

    So close! Wits almost level it up immediately through Dzvukamanja, but after a scramble in the box Tignyemb gathers.

  • 3'

    GOAL! CELTIC! POTSANE! 1-0. A sensational start for the hosts as Potsane slots beyond Dambe to put them 1 up.

  • 1'

    KICK OFF! We are underway with Celtic starting off proceedings.
