Bloemfontein - Ahead of their much anticipated Macufe Cup clash against Kaizer Chiefs this weekend, Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Layle Lakay is confident that Phunya Sele Sele will continue their dominance over the Soweto giants.
Celtic will be looking to record a fifth consecutive win over Chiefs when they renew their rivalry in the Mangaung annual spectacle at the Vodacom Park Stadium on Sunday.
The 25-year-old believes that Celtic will utilise the fixture to boost their confidence and get back to winning ways as they are still struggling to find their rhythm in the Absa Premiership this season.
"Yes we are confident because we have won the last four meetings of the Macufe Cup," insisted Lakay.
"As you know that it'll be played in Bloemfontein and it'll be fully packed there. And also considering our current league form we want to win the Macufe Cup and return to our winning ways.
"I know that Chiefs will come with a plan to stop us but we are confident that we'll win it."
Celtic are rooted at the bottom of the Absa premiership, while the Phefeni Glamour Boys are sitting comfortably at the summit of the log.
Meanwhile, Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande said they will be motivated to break a four-year hoodoo against Celtic.
Katsande hinted that Amakhosi are in the right frame of mind after registering three consecutive wins in the league.
"It's obviously not nice to experience four loses in a row," Katsande lamented.
"To us we feel like we are not competent enough but as Lakay said, Celtic are struggling with their league form.
"And now we are on top of the log and we are going there with confidence.
"We are in a good frame (of) mind and space with confidence also and obviously we want to continue with our winning momentum."
Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
