Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka believes the 3-1 win over league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday could prove to be a turning point in their campaign.

The win has brought some relief to Letsoaka whose team was struggling for form after 10 losses, seven draws and six wins.

The stunning upset over Sundowns came after goals from Lyle Lakay, Fiston Abdul Razak and Lantshene Phalane at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

"I think it is a turning point. One thing that has been eluding us has been goals. You could see we could have gotten much more from this," Letsoaka told KickOff.

"The dedication from the players, they wanted it so much, they were down. They came today and did everything to try to get the three points.

"I dedicate this to the players, the hard work they put in against a good side like Sundowns. We knew we had to get the turning point because the teams that were closer to the relegation zone were coming closer to us.

"We are in a very, very difficult situation at the moment, we had to get the three points. Like I say, I dedicate this to the boys."
