Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the PSL fixture between Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF! 0-0. We are underway at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
4'
For those who are wondering, Mzwanele Mahashe was rushed to hospital earlier today and according to Celtic's Twitter feed, he has a urinal infection which has ruled him out of this clash.
7'
Slow start to the match as the teams feel their way into it.
10'
Sanoka delivers a good cross for Nyoni but he can't keep his header down and Celtic can breath.
15'
United have made a brighter start to the match but only the one good chance has been created. Celtic look a bit flat.
17'
Lea'alafa hits the bar! So close for United.
22'
UPDATE: 0-0. It remains level but United have been mostly dominant in the first quarter of the match. Lea'alafa came so close to giving the hosts the lead. Celtic have been slow and will need to wake up.
29'
CLOSE! United almost take the lead. Morgan's long throw in from the left is flicked towards goal by Nyoni but it is well held by Mabokgwane.
31'
United go close again! Buchanan puts in a corner and Brockie meets it with a flick but the ball sails narrowly wide of the far post.
35'
10 minutes out from the break and it has been all United. However the scores remain level which will be of grave concern to the hosts.
38'
Celtic's troubles in this match can be largely put down to their injury crisis. Currently they have Mahashe, Rikhotso and Letlebika all out injured which means they are struggling at centre back.
41'
UPDATE: 0-0. United have been all over Celtic but have failed to make their dominance count with a goal. We are just a few minutes away from the break.
45'
HALF TIME! 0-0. The teams head down the tunnel goalless at the break. United have been the better side by some distance but have failed to find the back of the net. They will hope the chances they've missed doesn't come back to bite them in the second hal
46'
KICK OFF! 0-0. We are underway for the second half at the Harry Gwala Stadium. Celtic will want a much improved performance in the final 45 minutes.
48'
SUB for United - Shandu has replaces Lea'alafa.
49'
Xulu goes up and meets Sanoka's cross but his header is not on target.
52'
GOAL! CELTIC! SERA! 0-1. Celtic have grabbed the lead against the run of play and it is Sera with his third goal in three games. The hosts will be kicking themselves.
55'
That goal will feel like a dagger to the heart of the hosts. They have had the better of the match and most of the chances but yet find themselves down.
56'
SUB for United - Claasen replaces Kutumela.
60'
SUB for United - Brockie is replaced by Moseamedi.
63'
UPDATE: 0-1. Sera's third goal in three games separates the two sides despite United being largely dominant. The second half has been a vastly improved Celtic though.
66'
Lengthy injury break as Xulu receives treatment for a clash of heads.
68'
United go close again! This time it is two substitutes that combine well. Shandu's square ball is just too far ahead of Moseamedi.
72'
SUBS for Celtic - Maema is on for Sera and Mabokgwane is replaced by Chaine following his head clash with Xulu.
76'
Xulu is off after the head clash too and United are now down to 10 men having made all three subs.
79'
Shandu with the CHANCE but he blazes it over the crossbar. Poor effort for the sub.
81'
GOAL! CELTIC! LUTHULI! 0-2. United throw men forward as they chase an equaliser but Celtic catch them on the counter which leads to Luthuli tapping the ball into the back of the net. The match is all but over now.
85'
UPDATE: 0-2. Celtic lead by two after an atrocious first half in which United could easily have been a couple of goals to the good. However the hosts didn't take their chances and Celtic have made them pay.
86'
GOAL! MARITZBURG UNITED! CLAASEN! 1-2. A glimmer of hope for the home side. Claasen shows quick feet in the box and is fouled. He converts himself. Is there enough time for them to find the equaliser?
89'
As we are about to enter injury time the score remains 1-2 to Celtic. The hosts no doubt deserve something from this match but can they get it?
90'
FULL TIME! 2-2. What a finish to the match. United were dominant for most of the match but failed to take their chances. Celtic then took the lead and later doubled it. United then scored twice in the final 10 minutes with 10 men to take a well deserved p
90'
There will be 6 minutes added on at the end of the match.
90'
GOAL! MARITZBURG UNITED! Moseamedi! 2-2. They have done it, what a finish by Moseamedi! Two late goals allows United to draw level.
