Steve Komphela’s Bloemfontein Celtic is sitting pretty on second position of the Absa Premiership league table and is separated by goal difference from top-placed Bidvest Wits, while the big old boys like Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs languish in the bottom half.
Siwelele, also known as Bloemfontein Celtic, is sitting where they only dreamt of sitting before the season started. Celtic finds itself on the second spot of South Africa’s premier division, and is level on points with log-leaders Bidvest Wits.
Celtic’s dream start comes after defeating Orlando Pirates by an odd goal on Sunday to mark a 100 percent record of three victories out of three Absa Premiership matches.
Though still on top of the standings, Bidvest Wits dropped three points after an unexpected home loss to Supersport United on a cold Johannesburg evening on Saturday.
Kaizer Chiefs and Maritzburg United produced a disappointing 0 – 0 stalemate in front of a buzzing crowd of 12,000 fans on Friday night in Pietermaritzburg.
Here are the full results from last week’s PSL action:
Friday, 17 August 2018:
Maritzburg United 0 – 0 Kaizer Chiefs
Saturday, 18 August 2018:
