Bloemfontein Celtic claimed their first win away from home this season and moved above Kaizer Chiefs with a come-from-behind victory over Chippa United on Tuesday evening.
Chippa technical director Vladislav Heric made one change to his side, bringing in Maloisane Ramasimong for Augustine Kwem while Celtic boss John Maduka made two alterations, with Harris Tchilimbou and Sifiso Ngobeni coming into the side.
The Chilli Boys took the lead through a fantastic strike from Mduduzi Sibeko after Kurt Lentjies teed the ball him up perfectly to slice the ball on the half-volley away from Celtic keeper Jackson Mabokgwane and into the right corner.
Maduka’s side were creating the chances but just not capitalising. Five minutes before the interval Ndumiso Mabena delivered an excellent ball from the right-hand side into the box for an unmarked Tchilimbou, whose effort on the stretch was straight at Chippa goalkeeper Ismail Watenga.
Sandile Mthethwa then made a hash of a headed clearance and the ball fell to Mabena, who struck a fierce left volley just wide of the left upright.
