Usuthu targeting third victory

AmaZulu will look to register their third consecutive win in the Absa Premiership when they travel to the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium to take on Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday at 15h30.

Usuthu have won their last two league matches, including a 1-0 home victory over Polokwane City last week.

Craig Rosslee’s side are placed sixth on the Absa Premiership log with 34 points from 24 matches.

They have claimed 19 points from their 12 away matches so far this season and will look to get something against a Celtic side that is difficult to beat at home.

Usuthu’s next three league opponents are Free State Stars (home), Platinum Stars (away) and University of Pretoria (home).

Celtic are unbeaten in their last five matches and were held to a 1-1 draw by Maritzburg United last week.

Ernst Middendorp’s men have claimed 17 points from 10 home matches so far this season are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 32 points from 23 matches.

Their next three league opponents are Platinum Stars (home), Mamelodi Sundowns and Golden Arrows (both away).

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and AmaZulu have met in 45 league matches since 1985.

Phunya Sele Sele have 17 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 16 matches have been drawn.

Celtic have won 12 of their 23 home matches against AmaZulu, suffering just two defeats in the process.

When the teams met earlier this season in Durban, they played to a 1-1 draw thanks to goals from Lerato Manzini and Bongani Ndulula.
