Maritzburg United thumped Bloemfontein Celtic 4-0 in an Absa Premiership match at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday night.

The victory takes the Team of Choice to fourth spot on the league standings, while Phunya Sele Sele slipped down to seventh place.

Ajax Cape Town ended a three game losing streak with a 3-1 win over Platinum Stars in a thrilling Absa Premiership clash at Cape Town Stadium.

Meanwhile, Mamelodi Sundowns are bracing themselves for a tough ABSA Premiership match against Orlando Pirates at Loftus Versfeld.

The Pretoria club has a good head to head record against Bucs in recent years.

Pirates suffered a humiliating 6-nil defeat when the two teams last clashed at Loftus last year in February.
