Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Steve Komphela says his side are targeting 60 points this season and play to make the supporters proud.

Celtic have been in good form this season under Komphela and continued their progress when they beat high-flying Bidvest Wits 2-1 last Saturday in Johannesburg.

Substitute Tshegofatso Mabaso proved to be the hero as his late brace cancelled out Haashim Domingo's opener.

Currently, Siwelele are third in the Premiership standings on 20 points and trail leaders Orlando Pirates by three points.

"Twenty multiply by 30 gives you 60. There is nothing wrong with that, it is not a sin go for it.

"Just honour these people there [the supporters], that's all we want to see. They are calling our names and we have to honour them."

Celtic are next in action after the FIFA international break when they face SuperSport United in at the Dr. Petrus Molemela Stadium on Wednesday, November 28.
