Polokwane City v Bloemfontein Celtic

Bloemfontein Celtic will be looking to extend their four-match unbeaten streak when they travel to face Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

Bloemfontein Celtic will be looking to extend their four-match unbeaten streak when they travel to face Polokwane City at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

 

That run includes an impressive 3-1 victory over Highlands Park and draws with SuperSport United and Cape Town City.

 

Indeed, Phunya Sele Sele occupy the same position they finished in last season (8th). Meanwhile, after their excellent start to the season, Rise and Shine have fallen by the wayside and now see themselves in 10th position.

 

It has been a run of six league losses in a row for Polokwane, who at one point were second on the log and a humbling period for a side that finished fifth last season.

 

Bernard Molekwa has taken the reins on an interim basis after the sacking of Zlatko Krmpotic at the Limpopo-based club and oversaw a 3-2 defeat to Orlando Pirates on Tuesday evening - a thriller of a game in which both sides were reduced to 10 men.

 

It was an encouraging performance from Rise and Shine and Molekwa thought it was cause for optimism.

 

“Honestly speaking, we had to reorganise the team after he got the red card, because it destabilised our plan. But things like that happen in football and even after the red card I still believe the team played well, we kept the ball and got it behind them,” Molekwa told SuperSport TV.

 

“Pirates got three points, congratulations to them but they know they didn’t get them easy.”

 

Against Celtic, however, Molekwa's men will need to sort out their defensive frailties, with some suggesting they may fall in to the relegation zone before too long. But influential midfielder Jabulani Maluleke thinks otherwise.

 

“We started well this season‚” Maluleke told Sowetan Live.

 

“Yes things are not going well for us but we just have to keep our heads up. I’m proud of the boys for the good shift they put in [against Pirates].

 

“So we just have to look forward to the next game. I don’t think it’s time for us to be stressing about relegation.

 

“There’s still plenty of time of this season and we are not doing badly. There are teams below us but I’m surprised to hear the question of relegation.

 

“But we’ll take it and look forward and work hard to turn things around.”
