Bloemfontein Celtic coach Veselin Jelusic hungry for points following Kaizer Chiefs, Golden Arrows draws

Posted: 24 August 2017 Time: 11:17

Bloemfontein Celtic coach Veselin Jelusic would prefer to have more points from their first two matches of the season but is not too upset given they started with a game against Kaizer Chiefs.

Celtic played to a 1-1 draw with Chiefs at home before repeating the scoreline on the road against Golden Arrows at Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban last night.

"It was an exciting game. I think that both sides competed very well and there were some chances," said Jelusic after the stalemate with Abafana Bes'thende.

"We now have two points but we would love to have more points at this stage taking into consideration that we played a tough game against Kaizer Chiefs in the first league match. However, this field was very, very difficult to take points from here. But the result, I felt it was fair based on both sides' performances."

The Serbian, who took over the Siwelele reins from caretaker boss Lehlohonolo Seema in July, plans to make the most of the break in league action due to MTN8 semi-final football and the FIFA international recess.

"We are going to continue with our work as I've said to improve some aspects of the game. Some tactical, some physical aspects and hopefully in the next game we'll play well and achieve more.

"But, of course, we are always looking to play attractive football. It's not only about results, but also to please our supporters."
