Celtic reserves fight on
1/30/2019 4:04:41 PM

There are times in football where mathematicians take over from the so-called soccer pundits and the current situation at the summit of the MultiChoice Diski log forces that scenario to take control.

Bloemfontein Celtic reserves are at the pinnacle of the log having amassed 29 points and enjoying three points lead against their archenemy in Cape Town City reserves.

During this time of the season football is played with sheer repugnance and viciousness purely because of the massive European trip that will be enjoyed by ultimate winners. Another contender is Polokwane City with four point’s difference from the Free State based side. Now, the marauding Celtic team must at least get four points from their last two remaining games to ultimately be crowned champions.

“We are faced with two huge encounters of our lives,” comments Celtic coach, Ditheko Mototo speaking about their games against Baroka FC and Kaizer Chiefs respectively. “Our players are starting to believe that we can win this trophy and the confidence level has grown greatly.”

“At this stage of the competition there are no favours in fact even teams that are not necessarily in contention still want to win to salvage pride and such opponents are dangerous,” he acknowledges. “Baroka are a playing fast, entertaining and productive type of football similar to our style and there is no doubt fans will be entertained”.

The former Celtic left-back finishes by saying “Our job as the technical team is to deal with the psychological well-being of players not to panic or be over anxious. The good thing is we chat about it and they seem to be coping well and have shown some mental readiness during training this week.”

This colossal game will be played at Old Peter Mokaba, on Sunday the 3rd of February at 10h00.
