“It is always a big game travelling to Celtic,” Mathoho reacts ahead of Chiefs’ trip to face Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday evening.

Speaking to the club's official website, the former Celtic defender reveals he has had great memories with Phunya Sele Sele.

“I had good moments at Celtic but now I am a Glamour Boy. Celtic is not a so-called small team. They have the backing of their passionate supporters.”

Tower arrived back from the Africa Cup of Nations last week but insist that he is ready to compete.

“I am fresh and looking forward to combine well with my teammates to continue where we left off before the break.

“We learned a lot of things at the Afcon,” continues Mathoho.

“Playing against overseas based and experienced players was an eye-opener, which will come handy in the domestic league and cup matches.

“It is still a long way to go to the last game. We take each game as it comes. Celtic will look at breaking our momentum, but they will find us ready to defend our pride and the badge.”

The towering defender reminds the fans to attend the Amakhosi matches in huge numbers as we are heading to the grand finale of the 2014/15 PSL season.

“This is the month of love and we at Chiefs are all about Love and Peace.”

The encounter will be played at the Free State Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
