Buchanan Wary Of Arrows

Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder, Keagan Buchanan, has revealed that they will respect Golden Arrows when they clash tonight.

The Athlone-born player will not be available for tonight’s clash due to a knee injury he sustained during their Nedbank Cup clash against Wits last Sunday.

The Siya crew have already reported that the player will be out for a couple of months, and Buchanan says they are aware that Abafana Bes’thende are very dangerous as they continue to search for points.

“It’s our third loss at home and we’re disappointed to lose in a cup game. Wits are a strong team and we’re unfortunate because there was a red card and I was also injured. To be stretchered out in the first 30 minutes was a blow for me and the team. It’s past now, we have to move on. Coming to the Arrows game, we won’t take the game lightly as we know they’re looking for points and they’re fighting for their families, team and dignity. They played to a 2-2 draw against Ajax Cape Town, and they’re definitely motivated and they’ll put up a good fight at home,” said Buchanan.

"After playing Arrows, we’ll wait for Orlando Pirates at home next Monday," and the former FC Cape Town player said it’s a big one for both teams.

“Yeah, it’s a big game. We beat them 3-2 at Orlando Stadium so this time it’s war. They’ll come for revenge and they were on a slump of form but after their win against Sundowns on the weekend, they’re confident now. It becomes different when playing the big teams, we get inspired because we want to measure our progress as individual players. We’re fighting for a top eight spot you know and we’ll continue to compete because that’s the standard we set ourselves. Realistically, we’re fighting for a top eight finish but a top five is also not far from us,” added the 23-year old.

Tonight’s game gets underway at 19:30, and the venue is Harry Gwala Stadium.
