POLOKWANE – Baroka FC and Bloemfontein Celtic played to a 0-0 draw in a Premiership clash played at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Sunday afternoon.
There wasn’t all that much to enthuse over in a scrappy encounter, especially with Celtic having to play the final half-hour a man down after Lantshene Phalane was red-carded.
In a tight, tense encounter, both teams remained compact and difficult to break down. Both defences were well organised and, as a result, opportunities were hard to come by in the opening 45 minutes.
For visitors Celtic, Ronald Pfumbidzai flashed a harmless header at goal and Menzi Masuku was particularly prominent in attack.
Phalane also had a shot at goal for the Bloemfontein side, but he failed to trouble Baroka goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze.
