Cape Town - Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa tells Sport24 that as they face Bloemfontein Celtic in a PSL league game, they want to continue with their good form.

In their past two games, against Chippa United in the league, and against AC Leopards in the CAF Confederation Cup, Pirates won both games, scoring six goals in total.

Manyisa said that they are aware how difficult Siwelele can be at home, but they are prepared to break them down and keep their run going.

"Celtic is a tough team mainly, playing at their home ground," Manyisa said.

"But at the same time we want to continue with our good form.

"We are playing in different tournaments at the same time and this game can help us keep the momentum going.

"We know Celtic will come hard on us and try to win just like we will do, and that will make this an interesting game."
