Gabonamong Sets Sights On Arrows

After the disappointment of being knocked out of the Nedbank Cup, Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder, Mogogi Gabonamong, is setting his sights on tonight's league encounter against Golden Arrows.

The two sides meet at the King Zwelithini Stadium, with Abafana Bes’thende perhaps needing the points more than their opponents, as they fight for PSL survival. However, Gabonamong believes there is no time for favours, and that they will have to be cautious against the Durban side, who are expected to come out and attack in search of goals. Celtic are chasing a finish inside the top six bracket and a win against Arrows could see them moving up the table from their current eighth position, depending on other results.

“I know how difficult it is to go away and play a team that is bottom of the log and still believing they could avoid relegation by winning all their games. This is what will make them dangerous as they will go for broke and attack with venom. They may leave themselves exposed at the back and we will look to exploit that and pick up maximum points," said the veteran campaigner on the club’s official website. 

He continued, "Three points is vital to us at this stage of the season and we believe this match is the most important of the season. What happens in the next three matches is the furthest thing from our mind as we are focussing on Arrows.” 

A win for Celtic in Durban will be a good confidence booster ahead of their clash against Orlando Pirates on Monday and they will fancy their chances, having beaten Shaun Bartlett’s side 3-0 in the first round, after which Arrows fans threw missiles at then coach, Mark Harrison, who had to be escorted out of the field by police.
