Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic MD Rali Ramabodu has stressed the importance of getting a positive result against Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Saturday.

The winless Celtic are struggling at the tail-end of the table after a draw and two losses in the Premiership.

Coach Serame Letsoaka is under pressure to deliver after picking up from their poor form from last season.

"The reality is that football is results driven and having failed to accumulate points and consequently rooted at the bottom of the log table is a worrying factor for everyone associated with the team," Ramabodu told the club's website.

"Both players and the technical team know the importance of complimenting the good football we have been playing with goals. We definitely have to turn the corner.

"There is no doubt that we possess quality at the team and we fully understand the frustrations, especially of our forever fervent supporters.

"It is our duty as management to make sure we support our technical team and instil the spirit of unionism that will eventually yield positive results.

"Celtic is a huge brand, that must be mentioned and winning games must be a culture. We are incredibly optimistic about our chances of winning games, starting with the Stars game this Saturday."
