As has been the trend, The Clever Boys dominated the ball and dictated the pace throughout the encounter, creating most of the attacking chances, while Celtic were able to punish them with a swift counter-attack late on.
The best chance of the opening half fell to Amr Gamal in the 27th minute after Reeve Frosler’s cross picked him out in the area, his header going narrowly over the bar.
The sides resumed the second half with more of the same; Bidvest Wits pressing for an advantage and the hosts playing on the break.
The strategy worked, when former Black Leopards and AmaZulu striker Roggert Nyundu finished off the attack with a tap in 15 minutes from time.
The visitors applied heaps of pressure as the game drew to a close, but in the end, Celtic were able to hold on for the three points at home.
