The Team of Choice head into the tie on the back of their 2-0 defeat to SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals, but the side have enjoyed a steady run in the PSL and currently sit sixth.

Kaizer Chiefs managed to go six clear at the summit with victory over Golden Arrows on Tuesday, although Ernst Middendorp's men could still finish the day in second and close the gap to five points.

Celtic, though, will be buoyed by their penalty shoot-out triumph over Orlando Pirates in their Ziwa Mo last-eight clash, although Clinton Larsen's men are three points off the pace of their upcoming opponents.

Victory for Phunya Sele Sele could take them as high as fifth, although they would need to overcome a negative goal difference of minus-two.
