Larsen: TKO win no fluke
Johannesburg - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen is hoping to prove the
side's Telkom Knockout success was no fluke by beating bitter rivals
Free State Stars in the PSL on Saturday.
According to football411.com website
, Phunya Sele Sele lifted the Ziwa Mo trophy last weekend after
seeing off Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in the final, although they needed an
own-goal from Thabo September in their following match to rescue a 1-1
draw against SuperSport United.
Larsen, though, is confident his charges can carry their cup form
over to the PSL, and believes beating Ea Lla Koto this weekend would
signal their intent for the rest of the campaign.
"It's always a battle when these two sides meet," he said.
"Everybody was waiting to shoot us down after the Telkom Knockout final
win and expecting us to lose our next few games, but we are going out to
prove everybody wrong.
"We are not going to do what other teams have done in the past; win and then start losing games after that.
"We'll keep fighting for every point and see where that puts us by the end of December."
