Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka is targeting a Nedbank Cup win over Bidvest Wits in order to get the Free State side's season back on track.

Phunya Sele Sele are on a dismal run of form, with just one win in their last 16 matches in all competitions, while club owner Max Tshabalala is reportedly looking to sell the club.

That single victory, at the end of January (a first win since September 21 last year), came against Bidvest Wits in a league game, and Serame is hoping to again get the better of the Clever Boys.

"Wits is the only team we have beaten [since Letsoaka took over from Clinton Larsen], but that does not mean we should be complacent," Letsoaka said as quoted by the Sunday World.

"Maybe this is one game we can use to turn the corner. It's not going to be an easy game, but we have to continue fighting.

"The good thing is that we have been creating chances and we have played well in our matches," he said.

Kick-off is at 20:00 on Friday, March 4.
