Rodney Ramagalela concerned with Polokwane City's home record heading into TKO clash with Bloemfontein Celtic

Rodney Ramagalela is not so sure Polokwane City can boast 'home advantage' when they battle Bloemfontein Celtic at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday for a place in the Telkom Knockout final.
City have failed to win any of their six home matches this season, notably losing 2-1 to visiting Celtic in the league on September 12.
Ramagalela, the PSL's top scorer with six goals this campaign, admits Rise and Shine have struggled in front of their own supporters.
“I can't say we have a home ground advantage because if you check our record this season, we've not won at home,” Ramagalela said.
“It's a little bit tough for us but we just have to grind results and make sure we make our supporters proud when we meet Celtic.
“Last time when Celtic came to Polokwane they beat us 2-1, so it won't be easy and we just have to fight very hard.”
However, the Absa Premiership Player of the Month for October is not surprised that his club are in the semi-finals of the competition for the first time.
“You can't be surprised with Polokwane City being in the semi-final because from last season, we've been doing well. Even this season, we've been doing well so there is no surprise there.
“Our target as a club is to be in the top eight and if it happens we win the league that's a bonus, and also the history of the club.
“For now we are focusing on the semi-final and we will see how it goes.”
