Bloemfontein Celtic with a match in hand and no loss after three matches takes on Maritzburg United at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.

Wits caused a scare last season when they were threatened with relegation.

Everything fell apart and there was less commitment in the team. However, this season the Students have bounced back and are currently log leaders with 13 points.

Celtic coach Steve Khompela says the league is a marathon.

“We still have 25 matches to play nothing has been achieved so it is important as well to have that level of understanding and focus and we are professionals.”

Meanwhile Golden Arrows and Chippa United will be battling it out at the Princes Magogo Stadium in Saturday.

Arrows are in 12th – Chippa are 14th. Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen expects his players to perform better against Chippa United.

“We don’t have a drawing board I don’t know where people keep finding these drawing boards we’ve got a training field that we go on and we try and keep working on areas that we feel need improvement.”

The so called big guns, Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns are slowly climbing up the ladder.

Pirates are third followed by Chiefs and Sundowns in the top five. Bucs visit Baroka at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Amakhosi host Amazulu at FNB Stadium. Sundowns will only play on the 3rd of October because the league drew up the log in advance, to accomodate their CAF commitments. However, Sundowns have since bombed out of the Champions League.

Fifteenth placed Free State Stars take on Highlands Park at the Goble Park Stadium. Rookies Highlands Park, have not lost a match since they started this season. They have won one, and drawn four.
