Bloemfontein Celtic’s Captain, Patrick Amour Tignyemb together with youngster, Tshegofatso Mabasa are ecstatic and positive regarding their team’s chances against Bidvest Wits in the Telkom Knockout final encounter this Saturday night (02 December 2017). The two players shared their sentiments with the members of the media at Celtic’s media open day.

“What is helping us this season is that we are fighting for each other, praying together and the friendship we have built amongst ourselves is that of brotherhood. Personally for me, it will be an achievement to win the trophy for the second time and we ask God for mercy and strength to help the team achieve” indicated Tignyemb.

“The coach and technical team are not putting pressure on us, instead they are constantly reminding us to continue playing with tactical discipline and converting our chances. Whilst it is a fact that Wits has good players, we will be able to match them on the day, this is due to the fact that there is huge self-belief reigning in the team.”

Mabasa shared the sentiments of his senior and said “The mood in the camp is extremely high and the guys are happy.” My personal progress emanates from the guidance I get from my teammates and also the hard work I have put in towards achieving my goals. As players, we need to thank our supporters for their immeasurable support and subsequently urge them to paint the stadium green-and-white come this Saturday.”

Meanwhile, transport to Durban from Celtic Offices is available for R450 (four hundred and fifty rand), the return trip includes a match ticket. For more clarity, supporters can contact Ous Moipone Mokotedi on 076 824 7183.
