The first three league games for Bloemfontein Celtic will be a baptism of fire, as the club faces Mpumalanga Black Aces, Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs.
Aces did wonders in their first season in the topflight and will come out firing, especially because they’ll be facing us at home. However, we did not lose to them last season, as we drew 1-1 and then beat them 2-0. Needless to say, the Soweto giants of Bucs and Amakhosi always pose a challenge and if we lose those games, it could knock the confidence of the squad going into the following games.
That means the preparations from the technical team for those three crucial games need to start as soon as the players report for preseason on June 26.
You do well in those games, the fans are happy, the squad is pumped up and a message is sent out to the rest of the PSL that we mean business in the 2014/15 season.
In Phunya Sele Sele we believe!
