SuperSport United will make a return to PSL action for the first time in three weeks, after Caf Confederations Cup commitments have kept the Pretoria side out of contention in the league.

Matsatsantsa last took part in the PSL on February 25, going down to Bidvest Wits 3-2 at the Bidvest Stadium in Johannesburg.

SuperSport face a tricky trip to Bloemfontein and will want to improve on their away record of 15 points from a possible 30 on the road.

SuperSport will be without Thabo Moloi due to suspension but have a near fully-fit line-up from which to choose.

Cavin Johnson’s side come up against at least two of his former players in Mogogi Gabonamong and Davis Nkausu.

Celtic, meanwhile, are unbeaten in their last four games across all competitions, having earned two wins and a draw from their last three PSL encounters, as well as a crushing 8-0 win over the University of Stellenbosch in the Nedbank Cup

Phunya Sele Sele are always a tough team to beat at home but will also want to better their home record, where they have earned 16 points out of 27.

When the teams met earlier this season, in Pretoria, the pair played to a 1-1 draw thanks to goals from Mame Niang (United) and Musa Nyatama (Celtic).
