Platinum Stars Bloemfontein Celtic Premier Soccer League

Posted: 12 February 2014 Time: 19:13

Platinum Stars and Bloemfontein Celtic played out to a goalless draw at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday night.

It is a result that suits neither side really, though Celtic do move into the top eight as they overtake Moroka Swallows on goal-difference.

There were very few genuine chances in a game that featured two very organized and resolute defences

Stars had shots on goal, but never really troubled visiting goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb.

Luvolwethu Mpeta and Vuyo Mere had early efforts for Stars that drifted wide as Dikwena made the better start.

The teams went into the break at 0-0 and Celtic coach Ernst Middendorp immediately set out to change things up front; Lerato Lamola replaced by Vuyani Ntanga at halftime

The appeared to spur Celtic into life as both Wandisile Letlabika and Musa Nyatama had efforts on goal though nothing to worry Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Freese also switched his forward just before the hour-mark when Henrico Botes replaced Siphelele Mthembu.

Issa Sarr headed over at a corner for the home side, while Robert Ng’ambi and Tshepo Gumede then saw efforts go wide of either post in quick succession as the home side turned up the tempo.

But try as they might they could not find a winner in the closing stages and Stars had to settle for a share of the spoils.  

Next up for Dikwena is a trip to University of Pretoria on Sunday, while Celtic are back in action in a week’s time when they travel to Kaizer Chiefs next Wednesday.
