JUST when it seemed Bloemfontein Celtic’s fortunes against Silver Stars had been placed in cold storage on Sunday, Timothy Batabaire struck late to secure his side a priceless away point in the South African Premier soccer league.

The Ugandan international defender, highly regarded by the backroom staff at Celtic, had prior to the weekend fixture put up an elegant performance in his club’s 1-0 win over league leaders Orlando Pirates.

The former SC Villa player joined the South African club late last year. Batabaire will be part of the Cranes team that has regrouped for the 2006 World Cup/Nations Cup qualifier against South Africa set for Johannesburg’s FNB Stadium on March 27. Plans to shift the match to Cape Town failed.
