Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco insists the club backs head coach Serame Letsoaka and his charges to turn their season around.

Phunya Sele Sele have struggled to get going this campaign, collecting only four points from their opening four games in the Absa Premiership, while losing in the first round of the Telkom Knockout.

Letsoaka and his players have a chance to get their season back on track tonight when they take on Chippa United in Port Elizabeth.

"Our recent slump and inability to convert the numerous chances that are created every game is a huge concern and that has detrimental repercussions towards our vision for the 2016/17 league season," Konco told the club's website.

"Even in the midst of all the challenges, we are still fully behind the players and technical team.

"Every single point is important to us and the game against Chippa is made more crucial by the fact that we lost twice against them last season and our current position pushes us to win at all costs. 

"The pressure is mounting but lucky enough, we have experienced players who know the significance of fighting with determination, especially when the chips are down.

"Our supporters are understandably pained but through their constant support, we will turn the corner."
