Welcome to live coverage of the DST Premiership as Bloemfontein Celtic host Swallows. Kickoff from Dr. Molemela Stadium is at 5pm.
1'
Kickoff! We are underway.
2'
Swallows are setting up with a 4-3-3 shape today with Mokoena and Mahlatsi as two attacking midfielders.
3'
We've had the first incident of the match as Gamildien beats Mahashe to a pass for Swallows and is clattered by the Celtic defender. The referee decides to give a foul but no yellow card.
4'
Sekgota takes the freekick for Swallows but it's a poor effort from 30 yards and is blocked by the wall.
7'
Celtic have a good spell of possession as they switch play from side to side with long passes but when the ball reaches Baloyi, he delivers a very poor cross which is blocked.
8'
Sekgota win a corner for Swallows as his cross is headed behind. He takes the corner from the left but Celtic head clear.
9'
Celtic counter at speed and Letsoalo sets up Mabena to strike at goal from 25 yards but he puts the effort high over the bar for the home side.
11'
Bloemfontein Celtic have started in a 3-4-3 shape today with Baloyi and Matjila as wingbacks.
12'
Mabena is down for Celtic and needs some treatment on his left thigh.
15'
Mabena is fine to continue but this match has really lacked any goalmouth action so far. It's no wonder that Swallows have lost one match all season in the PSL but drawn a massive 12 of their 21 games.
17'
Swallows put together a nice buildup and Mahlatsi sets up Sekgota out on the left wing. He delivers a cross but it's straight into the arms of Celtic goalkeeper Chaine.
21'
Mabena has gone to ground and indicated to the Celtic coaching staff that he is unable to continue due to injury.
23'
Celtic now make that change with Mabena replaced by Tchilimbou. Baloyi takes over as captain.
27'
We have another injury now as Ngobeni clatters Sekgota in an aerial challenge. This match has been very stop-start with no sustained period of attacking for either team.
30'
We've reached the half hour mark and it's been a dull match so far with both teams defending in numbers. We've barely had a shot thus far.
33'
Some match stats so far: Celtic have made 164 passes at 82% accuracy. Swallows have made 110 passes at 73% accuracy.
34'
Mahlatsi is caught by a late challenge from Baloyi and the latter is lucky not to be yellow carded at least.
37'
This match has seen just two shots so far, both from Celtic. 61% of the match has been played in the middle third.
38'
Tchilimbou slips and is caught in the head by Sekgota. The former has to have some treatment as the match is stopped again.
40'
CHANCE! Swallows have a big opening. Ngobeni gives the ball away for Celtic and Nyatama plays a pinpoint pass for Sekgota. He just has Chaine to beat but the 'keeper puts the winger off and he chips his effort over the crossbar.
42'
Mere plays a long pass for Swallows towards Gamildien, who collapses under the challenge of Ngobeni. The forward wants a penalty but the referee is having none of it and no teammates really appealed.
45'
HALF TIME. Celtic 0-0 Swallows. The first 39 minutes saw some really turgid stuff but the final six minutes saw a couple of good chances. See you in 15 minutes for the second half.
45'
+2' CHANCE! Masuku delivers a corner for Celtic, it's headed back across goal and Tchilimbou has a header saved from close range! That should have been the opener.
45'
The fourth official indicates two minutes of added time to be played.
45'
After a break in play, Mashikinya is shown a yellow card for that cynical earlier foul on Gamildien.
45'
Swallows counter attack at speed -- Gamildien is clattered in the centre circle but gets up and tests Chaine with a shot but it's caught comfortably.
46'
The second half is underway. Neither side have made any changes at the interval.
48'
Celtic have a corner early in the half -- Maema delivers an in-swinger from the right with his left foot but it evades all of his teammates in the box.
50'
Celtic continue to look good in this half so far. Matjila gets forward from left wingback and delivers a pinpoint cross but Tchilimbou heads wide under intense pressure. Maybe we will see a goal in this match after all.
55'
GOAL! SEKGOTA! Swallows take a 1-0 lead. Celtic try to play out from the back and Chaine passes it straight to the Swallows man Sekgota who slots into an open net. What a poor howler from the goalkeeper. Celtic 0-1 Swallows.
57'
Celtic will need a big reaction here to extend their nine match unbeaten run at home.
58'
Matlaba makes a lovely run for ward for Swallows and he is about to pull the trigger for a shot when Rikhotso cuts him down. Freekick in a good area for the Birds and surprisingly no yellow card for the challenge.
59'
Gamildien steps forward to strike the freekick for Swallows but it's straight into the wall.
60'
GOAL! MAEMA! Celtic are level out of nothing. Masuku bursts forward down the left and squares for Maema to strike home via a deflection off Letlabika. Bloemfontein Celtic 1-1 Swallows.
63'
This match is far more open now with greater space for the two teams to attack and counter attack.
66'
Swallows make their first change of the match as Seabi replaces Mbokoma. That's a holding midfielder on for a winger -- a sign that the visitors may be settling for a draw.
68'
Celtic make a change now as Masuku is withdrawn and target man Sera is thrown into the action.
69'
Close! Celtic nearly take the lead. Swallows carelessly give the ball away near their own box and Letsoalo drills a powerful shot inches over the crossbar for Celtic.
71'
Swallows are sitting deeper now with Seabi deeper alongside Nyatama in shielding the defence.
74'
Swallows make another change as Gamildien is withdraw with Gozar introduced. The latter scored the winning goal in Swallows' last match.
76'
POST! Celtic came close to taking the lead as Maema curls a shot from distance which has Vries beaten and strikes the upright. Baloyi thumps the rebound but the 'keeper saves well at the near post.
78'
Celtic make a triple change now as Van der Ross replaces Letsoalo, Ncobeni replaces Mashikinya and Mangweni comes on for Matjila.
80'
This match is petering out somewhat with a lot of throw-ins and fouls.
84'
Swallows are making a double change now as Mhlongo and Mzwakali come on for Mahlatsi and Sekgota.
87'
Celtic are trying hard to get a winner here. Van der Ross puts a shot wide and then Baloyi's cross is well defended by Letlabika who is fouled by Sera in the air.
90'
FULL TIME. A hard fought match ends 1-1. Sekgota gave Swallows the lead before Maema levelled. Thanks for joining us.
90'
+6' Vries is shown a yellow card for timewasting.
90'
+5' Close! Mzwakali scuffs an effort after a fine Mokoena cross for Swallows. That was an opening.
90'
The fourth official indicates five minutes of additional time to be played.
90'
Vries now falls onto the ball in the Swallows box as the goalkeeper wastes time and takes the sting out of the match. Brandon Truter is clearly satisfied with a point.
