Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs defender Kgotso Moleko believes the club are in a confident mood ahead of their PSL clash against Bloemfontein Celtic.

Moleko started in Sunday’s 2-1 win over Acornbush United in the Nedbank Cup Last 16.

Three days later another game awaits against Bloemfontein Celtic in an Absa Premiership fixture.

The Kaizer Chiefs right-back is born and bred in Bloemfontein. 

Moleko is keeping Ramahlwe Mphahlele on his toes, with 'Rama' having only started 23 official matches so far.

However, the defender says that he is thankful to the former Mamelodi Sundowns captain as he is often giving him advice during the games.

"It's always a special feeling to play Celtic. It's always good to get an opportunity to play," the 27-year-old told the club's official website.

"We talk a lot with each other. Even during half-time of the game against Acornbush, 'Rama' spoke with me, giving me some advice. He told me to sometimes make a run more straight towards the box.

"Celtic have a good team. However, we are in a good space at the moment. We want to take it."

Kick off is at 19:30.
