Bloemfontein Celtic reserves will be facing Orlando Pirates reserves at Dr. Molemela Stadium on Saturday, 6 October. This match, kicking off at 12h00 is anticipated to be a thrilling encounter between teams currently struggling to hit form this season. Siwelele is lying ninth on the log, having accumulated four points after playing three games and the visitors have only one point to show from their already 3-games played.

Speaking about the game, Kgosietsile Molokwane, Celtic reserves team manager said “There is absolutely no doubt that we are in a rebuilding process having signed a lot of players this season, however, that cannot be used as a pretext for our shortcomings during our games. For example the technical team tremendously worked with the team on how to defend collectively and avoiding unnecessary mistakes but against SS United after leading by 3-1 we allowed them to eventually equalize.”

“This week our coaches emphasized on the same loopholes and identified our opponents ‘ weaknesses which the players must exploit and we only hope this time they will minimize mistakes and start converting chances created. Lacking from last season’s team is the zeal to win under horrendous circumstances and this is what the current team must learn, to vigorously fight unreservedly and constantly remaining focused until the 90th minute and beyond. Unfortunately there is no room for excuses our responsibility is to make sure we produce thriving results all the time” he concluded.
