Bloem Celtic keeper Tignyemb: No mercy for Swallows
Posted: 8 May 2015 Time: 09:27
Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb is mindful his team could send Moroka Swallows to the NFD but insists his side can not afford to show mercy on Saturday.
The Cameroonian was speaking ahead of his side's trip to Swallows for their final 2014/15 Absa Premiership encounter.
The Dube Birds need a win at all costs to save their PSL status provided AmaZulu and Chippa United fail to register victories.
On the other hand, Tignyemb and company are looking for a positive result following their 1-0 loss at the hands of arch rivals Free State Stars in midweek.
Celtic chairman Max Tshabalala has also threatened to cancel the club's annual awards ceremony on Sunday if the team fails to return with three points from Dobsonville Stadium.
“We understand what’s going on at Swallows but our job is to win our matches because we’re professionals – we have no mercy as we’ve lost two games,” says Tignyemb.
“Football is our profession and that means we’re professionals in our job, so going to Swallows and put up a fight is what we must do.
“We have been fighting very hard in all our matches and it’s just that sometimes things don’t go your way.
“We have to go there and play our normal game, we want the three points, nothing has changed and we understand their situation but we’re professionals.
“We must wrap our year on a high and the focus is on the prize which is the three points – we understand it’s going to be tough but we’ll fight.”
