'Celtic have scrutinised Wits'
Posted: 1 October 2017 Time: 10:00
Bloemfontein Celtic assistant coach John Maduka says they have studied Bidvest Wits' style of play and backs his men to return to winning ways at the champions' expense.
Celtic held Chippa United to a goalless draw in Port Elizabeth last weekend, having lost 2-0 to high-flying Baroka in their previous clash.
Maduka, who is aiding new head coach Veselin Jelusic, expects the side to redeem themselves at Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
“We had a scrappy game against Chippa United last weekend and obviously the boys would want to redeem themselves with a win especially at home,” Maduka told the club's website.
“The team is ready and preparations went fantastically well with players graciously fighting to be part of the 18-man squad to play on Sunday.”
The former Phunya Sele Sele captain added: “Look, we have made assessment and scrutinised their playing style which changes accordingly but we have players capable of beating any team.”
Siwelele have six points from five games, a point more than Wits. Gavin Hunt's charges enter the match on the back of their first win of the season, a 1-0 defeat of high-flying Orlando Pirates.
