Nyatama: We Want Three Points

As Bloemfontein Celtic ready themselves for the fixture against Platinum Stars on Sunday, Musa Nyatama says all that’s on their minds is collecting three points.

Ernst Middendorp’s side has slipped out of the top eight bracket and currently sit in ninth position on the log, with 33 points after 24 games. They dropped two valuable points against AmaZulu last Sunday and will be keen to collect all points on offer at Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium this weekend. Meanwhile, Dikwena suffered a setback on Tuesday when they lost 1-0 to Moroka Swallows and are also out to redeem themselves.

Nyatama, who has been in sublime form since making the move to Phunya Sele from Mamelodi Sundowns on loan at the beginning of the season, says Allan Freese’s side can expect to have a tough afternoon. 

“It won’t be an easy game, that’s for sure. They lost to Swallows in their previous game and obviously they won’t want to lose two in a row. Our aim is to finish the season inside the top eight and, as you can see, we are now in position nine and that is not good. A win on Sunday will put us back among the top teams in the league. All we want is just to collect maximum points and we won’t settle for anything less, especially playing in our home ground,” he warned. 

The former Maritzburg United player has started 21 league games for Celtic and has scored seven goals in all competitions, and rumour has it that although the club is keen to keep him on a permanent basis, Sundowns see him as part of their plans going forward.
