SuperSport United will play host to Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday at the Lucas Moripe stadium as they look to wrestle top spot in the Absa Premiership from Mamelodi Sundowns
Sunday’s match against an always challenging Bloemfontein Celtic will prove all important if Matsatsantsa wish to stay in touching distance with their Pretoria rivals, Sundowns who are above the Trendy Boys on goal difference.
With Bloemfontein Celtic’s newly appointed coach Ernst Middendorp still looking for his first win at the helm, SuperSport head Coach Cavin Johnson hopes for consistency in order to retain their higher position in the Premier League. The Pretoria based-side has just come off the back of a 1-0 win away to Maritzburg United and the mentor is eager to continue with that trend.
“We are going into the Celtic match with one thing on our minds, and that is to get maximum points. To lose this game would give a great advantage to the chasing pack and that is something we do not want. We have worked hard to be in this position and it is up to us to maintain and continue with that standard.” said Johnson.
