Match Stats: Maritzburg v Celtic
11 September 2015
Maritzburg United welcome back former coach Clinton Larsen for Saturday night’s Absa Premiership encounter with Bloemfontein Celtic at Harry Gwala Stadium, 20h15.
The Team of Choice (15th position) are looking for their first win of the season after picking up just a single point to date, while Phunya Sele Sele have four points from three games, including a win over Pirates, which sees them in ninth spot on the standings.
