A battle of two teams with contrasting style of play is looming when Bloemfontein Celtic faces an equally wounded Bidvest Wits this Friday (3rd March 2017) at Bidvest Stadium. In a match that is scheduled to kick-off at 20h00.
The Wits team likes a more direct approach to their game and have lethal strikers in Gabaldinho Mohango and James Keene who are able to score goals at ease and on the contrary Celtic believes in unadulterated, free flowing style; unfortunately converting chances has been major problem for the Mangaung based side.
Co-coach Lehlohonolo Seema believes that with a proper frame of mind and focus on doing things correctly, the players will hold their own against Wits. “Preparations went neatly well and we were amazed at how the players responded especially after losing at home. We know that we are faced with a hurdle, playing such a brilliant team like Wits but we are also worried about our current league position and the only way to survive is by winning,” he commented.
Seema agrees they are winning so many set-pieces and is about time they start utilising them appropriately. “Players are scoring on dead-ball situations during training and that makes you realise that we are trying our best as the technical team to remedy the problem and that must be transferred to game situations. Luckily our spirit is not dented and the boys are willing to fight for the badge and put at ease, the obviously frustrated supporters.” concluded the optimistic Seema.
