We have suffered a home defeat to Siwelele at the Princess Magogo Stadium tonight.

From the first minute of the game, the team just did not seem to get into the groove of the game and allowed Bloem Celtic to get behind the defence.

We had a couple of moments of promising play, but nothing that looked threatening enough to Tignyemb who had an easy night in the goals tonight.

In the 23rd minute Celtics persistence in playing the ball deep up field paid off when Mabasa found himself one on one with Gumede and made no mistake in his shot, giving the visitors an early lead in the game.

A half time substitution from us saw Conco replace Sabelo in an attempt to up the tempo of the game, which did not have the results that we wanted.

Although we seemed to dominate the field in the second half, we could just not break past the defence of our opponents.

Lamola had a chance to pull one back, but Tignyemb managed to fall on the ball, killing it and denying the one decent attempt we had on target.

Celtic sealed the game in the 50th minute. Dlamini scored for them and made sure that we had to fight back hard to just stay in the game.

Not a great result from us, and it will cause unnecessary pressure as we prepare for the Cup game on Sundowns at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
