Since the arrival of new coach Vladislav Heric, Chippa look much improved with two wins and two draws and four clean sheets in the league. Celtic are proving hard to beat right now but they are struggling to score goals and are terrible in away matches. I am tipping Chippa to take a crucial home victory.

Chippa recalled Mduduzi Sibeko in midfield against Leopards and he should keep his place after a strong performance.
