AmaZulu FC will travel to the Dr Molemela Stadium where they are scheduled to face Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership match on Sunday.

Celtic suffered a second loss from their last three league matches when they were beaten 2-1 at Orlando Pirates on April 4.

The Bloemfontein side has managed just two wins from their last 10 league matches, bringing them just nine points from a possible 30.

Phunya Sele Sele have claimed 21 points from 12 home matches this season, with their last game as hosts bringing a 1-0 win over Platinum Stars in mid-March.

AmaZulu ended a four-game winless streak by beating Ajax Cape Town 2-1 at home on April 3.

It was the Durban side’s first league victory since back-to-back three-pointers against SuperSport United and Golden Arrows in late January and early February.

Usuthu have claimed 11 points from 12 away matches this season, with their last result on the road a goalless stalemate at Kaizer Chiefs in mid-March.

In head-to-head stats, AmaZulu and Celtic have met in 49 league matches since 1985.

Phunya Sele Sele have claimed 19 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 18 matches have been drawn.

The Bloemfontein side has won 13 of their 25 home league matches against the Durban club, suffering just two defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season, they played to a goalless draw in Durban in late January.

Phunya Sele Sele are unbeaten in their last five league matches against Usuthu.
