Nyatama: It Was A Blow

Bloemfontein Celtic travel to the King Zwelithini Stadium to face struggling Golden Arrows for their league second round fixture.

Siwelele are fresh from the 2-1 Nedbank Cup quarterfinal defeat at the hands of Wits at home this past Sunday. On-loan Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Musa Nyatama, shared his sentiments with the Siya crew on the pain of another cup exit.

The erstwhile Maritzburg United player revealed that he was disappointed to lose and exit the cup, but that’s part of football.

“I’m trying to do my best at all times for the club and I will continue to up my game. Unfortunately we lost against Wits and that was a blow for all of us. We’re all disappointed but that’s water under the bridge now, and we’re focusing on the league now. Tomorrow is a big one for both teams, we all know they’re fighting for their lives and they’ll put up a good fight. We also want to be in the top eight and that makes it an interesting one for both teams.  

“It’s not going to be a walk in the park even though we beat them in the first round. They’ll give us a good run for the three points. We’ll go there prepared for a fight for our lives, they need the points at all costs. I anticipate a tough one honestly. The coach made it clear that after our loss on Sunday, we must forget it and shift our focus to the next games,” added the Benoni-born player.

Siwelele are placed at position eight after 26 games with 36 points, while their opponents are rooted at the bottom of the table with 14 points after 25 games.

The proceedings get underway at 19:30.
