After gaining a valuable point in Cape Town against  Ajax last week, we knew that ultimately a win against Bloem Celtic would be of utmost importance in our campaign.

We started with all the attacking options we had in order to push for the win we wanted.

Going into half time at goalless we were positive that our game plan was successful , however Celtic scored against the run of play in the early minutes of the second half. This was because we allowed  them to pass their way through our defence and gave them too much space on the ball. We were dealt the ultimate punishment for this, and they went ahead.

Because of this our game planned had to change slightly, and getting the equaliser then became our priority. Moholo ensured we had an exciting finish on our hands when he scored in the 64th minute.

Our cause was then given a lifeline in the 75th minute when Celtic received a red card for a foul on Khuboni .

Applying more pressure during the last 15  minutes was always going to have setbacks and we gave them some counter attacking movements.

With almost the last kick of the game Mbewe could have won it for us but a clearance off the line denied us the victory.

We will have to win all our remaining games in order to survive now. We meet Platinum Stars on the weekend at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in the first of our last 4 games.
