Nyatama Warns Wits

Musa Nyatama, who makes a return for Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup quarterfinal against Wits, is targeting a win for his side.

Celtic will take on the Clever Boys in the last bit of action for the cup quarterfinal, as the three other games take place on Saturday. Wits are coming into the encounter as the in-form side, as they have won in their last three league matches, and have beaten Ernst Middendorp’s side two times already this season.

Celtic will be out for revenge and should bank on their home fans at Seisa Ramabodu Stadium for a victory that will take them a step closer to clinching the coveted title, as they are yet to lose at home since the year started. Nyatama was mising in action in the midweek loss to Mamelodi Sundowns due to a loan agreement clause that prevents him from playing against his parent club, and is now back. 

“Wits are a good team, they are solid and compact and hard to break down, as well as having good attacking players. They have a great coach in Gavin Hunt and are in good form but we are also playing good soccer and are confident to beat any team, especially at home.

"A cup match is different to a league encounter in that there has to be a winner and with our defence only conceding a handful of goals in 14 matches this year we believe we can keep them scoreless. Our attacking force is also playing well and if we can convert the chances we are creating then we stand a great chance to win,” he told Celtic’s official website.

Nyatama has been in good form in the Nedbank Cup and scored a hat-trick in the first round as Phunya Sele Sele routed University of Stellenbosch 8-0. In the Last 16, he also scored and helped his side advance with a 2-1 score line over Witbank Spurs.
