Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic lifetime president Petrus Molemela said the win against Kaizer Chiefs in the Macufe Cup at the weekend would spark a much-needed revival at the club.

Celtic have produced a most inauspicious start to their Premiership campaign and have lost three of their last five matches.

Siwelele currently find themselves in 14th place in the league standings, having accumulated just six points throughout the campaign.

Molemela is of the conviction that this will change, though, when the club hosts a struggling Polokwane City at the Kaizer Sebothelo Stadium on Sunday.

"By virtue of winning Macufe Cup, we have somehow cleansed ourselves from bad luck seen during our last few games," Molemela told the club’s website this week.

"Even when we were playing good football we would loose by an odd goal and clearly we need some bit of luck to accomplish our targets," added Molemela, who does not think that the club’s results this season have been an accurate reflection of how they have performed.

"The game against Chiefs reminded me of the old days, with former players like Killer Mkhwanazi and Ten Percent Serathi harassing and dazzling opponents with such amazing skill, this current crop of players are highly talented and will gradually grow and become unbeatable."

Celtic and Polokwane City will both be looking to move away from the danger zone near the bottom of the Absa Premiership when they meet at Free State Stadium on Sunday, October 19.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
