Stuart Baxter has lately been resting his senior players; giving the likes of George Maluleka and Mandla Masango a run in the Chiefs starting line-upKaizer Chiefs midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane has admitted that their game against Bloemfontein Celtic will not be an easy encounter despite being their home game.
Phunya Sele Sele went on to beat Chiefs' rivals Orlando Pirates in their own backyard late last year, but 'Yeye' said that they are more focused on their game than what Celtic can do.
"The game will be tough. As you know Celtic has been doing well since the arrival of Coach Ernst Middendorp. We have to work hard as a team to win the game on Wednesday. Even though we know what they can do, we will always focus on our game plan," Letsholonyane told the Chiefs' website.
Letsholonyane also backed the rotation system that coach Stuart Baxter has implemented so far this term with the likes of George Maluleka and Siyabonga getting some real game time.
"We are happy with the rotation of the players and that has been evident with the results. We are coping with the rotation system that the technical team have implemented. We are all working hard to get a chance to play and so far the system is working," added Letsholonyane.
With AmaKhosi leading Sundowns by six points at the top of the table, Letsholonyane is not worried that the Brazilians are slowly closing the gap.
He said that they are focused more on their achievements than what other teams behind them are doing.
"We are not looking at the other teams and their performances or whether they are closing the gap at the top of the table or not. What the other clubs are doing is not of our concern, ours is to work hard and continue to win our games," concluded Yeye.
