Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Clinton Larsen says it will be a challenging match against Polokwane City in their Absa Premiership opener because they have always been a difficult team for them.
Larsen said that his team hopes to redeem themselves for the loss they suffered last year after they were beaten 3-0.
Phunya Sele Sele’s mentor said he hopes the boys will play with heart, despite away matches always being a challenge.
“We can definitely expect a challenging game against them," Larsen told Sport24.
“Last season we lost 3-0 when we had played them so it will be yet another challenge.”
“What we would like to do is redeem ourselves from that result.”
“We had been playing for some time towards the end of the season then we lost that game. We just hope the boys will play with all their heart.”
“Away games in this league are very challenging.”
“It’s never easy getting a win in an away game in this league but we can only do our very best.”
“We want to do our best going forward.”
Bloemfontein Celtic take on Polokwane City on Saturday at the Peter Mokaba stadium.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
