Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb has maintained that the objective for his team this season remains a top eight finish in the Premiership.

Celtic were on a downward spiral before their surprise 3-1 win over league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns last week.

The rare win snapped a five-match losing streak for Siwelele, who are 12th in the table with 25 points from 23 games.

"Perhaps people don't know we are still yearning for a top-eight position and that is not mission impossible," Tignyemb said on the club's website.

"We do have our goal as players and that can be achieved if we remain confident in our approach and play with vigour like we did on Wednesday night.

"The reality is that when the team is not doing well there will always be tension, pain and to a certain degree frustrations brought by poor results.

"Again, that dreadful feeling of seeing your team in a state of misfortune depresses you more but after the Sundowns game, suddenly the spirit is high again.

"The players realised that we have the ability to play and win anywhere."
