Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic start their Absa Premiership season on Saturday with a match against Polokwane City and captain Bevan Fransman says that they have forgotten about their win against Mamelodi Sundowns and are now concentrating on the league. 

Celtic beat Mamelodi Sundowns on penalties in the MTN8 quarter-finals after the match ended 0-0 after 90 minutes and 1-1 after extra-time.

But Fransman, the former Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United defender, told Sport24 that this is a league game and City are a different team compared to Sundowns. 

"This is a league game and if we want to win we have to do it within the 90 minutes,” Fransman told Sport24

“There is no extra-time or penalties here and a win in regular time will give us the first three points of the season and that's what we want.”
