SSU, Celtic share the spoils

SuperSport United and Bloemfontein Celtic played to a 2-all draw in an Absa Premiership encounter in the Free State province last night.

The match was held at the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein.

The visitors opened the scoring account in the 19th minute of the first half when Aubrey Modiba netted a beautiful free-kick just outside the box.

The halftime score was 1-0 to SuperSport United.

United could have won the match after fluffing a lot of scoring opportunities in both halves.

On the other hand, the home side fought for an equalizer and were ultimately rewarded in the 49th minute to make the score 1-1.

United skipper’s absence was visible after sitting out a match due to suspension.

SSU line-up:

Williams, Nhlapo, Daniels, Fleurs, Modiba (Qalinge 75’), Mokoena, Webber, Mbule (Gabuza 72’), Rusike, Mahachi (Kekana 72’), Grobler

Meanwhile Matsatsantsa will now focus on the Telkom Knockout as they welcome Golden Arrows in the Last 8 stage of the competition.  The match is scheduled for Mbombela Stadium on Saturday night. Kick-off is at 20:15.
