Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic will look to end their winless streak in the Absa Premiership when they host Kaizer Chiefs at Free State Stadium.

Celtic saw their winless run in the league extended to seven matches when they were held 2-2 away to Ajax Cape Town on January 8.

The Bloemfontein club has claimed seven points from five home matches this season.

Phunya Sele Sele are placed seventh on the Absa Premiership log with 17 points from 13 matches.

Chiefs played to their seventh draw of the season when they were held goalless at home by Mamelodi Sundowns on January 9.

The Soweto giants have claimed eight points from six away matches this season.

The Amakhosi are placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with 22 points from 13 matches.

In head-to-head stats, Celtic and Chiefs have met in 55 league matches since 1985.

The Amakhosi have claimed 31 wins compared to 10 for Phunya Sele Sele, while 14 matches have been drawn.

Celtic have won eight of their 27 home matches against Chiefs, suffering eight defeats in the process.

Last season the Amakhosi took four points off Phunya Sele Sele, winning 1-0 at home before drawing 0-0 away in the return game.

Celtic have not scored against Chiefs in the league since a 2-2 draw back in 2010/11.

Kick-off is at 15:30 Sunday, January 17.
