Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic managing director Rali Ramabodu has absolutely no doubts about his club's prospects ahead of the Premiership fixture against SuperSport United.

Read: Larsen expected tough game

Celtic, who are playing at home again, are actually on a tear at the moment, having now recorded three consecutive league victories.

Phunya Sele Sele are among the top six once again and the decision to part ways with former coach Ernst Middendorp appears to have been an inspired one. Under the tutelage of Clinton Larsen, the team appears to have no fear anymore.

"The resilience and shrewdness displayed by our team recently resembles that of soldiers willing to die with their boots on," said a proud Ramabodu.

"Even the unavailability of certain players does not affect the rhythm and that shows we have depth and a team collectively working as a unit to reach its goal," added the football administrator.

"Undermining United will be a mistake of calamitous proportions, looking at the type of players they have, we must remain focused and perseveringly work without reservations, not only to win but continue to competently perform to our maximum best," concluded Ramabodu.
