Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen is hoping a change in formation will help propel his side to a top-four finish in the Premiership this season.

Larsen recently returned to the Celtic dugout for a second spell, having previously worked at the club between 2010 and 2013.

He took over the reins from German tactician Ernst Middendorp and feels a return to a familiar tactical setup will help Phunya Sele Sele achieve their goals this term.

"The break for the African Nations Cup really helped us, we had a new technical team and it gave us an opportunity to work on some things," Larsen told the Sowetan Live.

"It has always been the Celtic style to play with wingers and we wanted to return to that.

"They were playing very narrow under the former coach, with three midfielders and no wingers.

"Guys like Thapelo Morena, Joel Mogorosi and Lyle Lakay got almost no game time under the former coach, but are now starting to get that form back."

Having narrowly missed out on a top-four finish in recent campaigns, Larsen is hoping to finally steer his side into the Premiership's top four this time around.
