New Bloemfontein captain Clayton Daniels believes that their solid defence will be tested against PSL champions Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday nightThe Siwelele backline is yet to concede a goal in 2014 thanks to their new signings, central defender Musa Bilankulu and Zambia international David Nkausu who have proved to be good signings for Celtic so far. Experienced wing back Tsietsi Mahoa has also been solid at left back.
“We are going into the Chiefs game with confidence in our back five but we are also very aware of the threat the table-toppers possess,” Daniels told Bloemfontein Celtic's official website.
The 29-year old defender who signed a pre-contract with SuperSport United last month, has been fine tuning his troops at the back since their former skipper Thabo Nthethe joined Mamelodi Sundowns in January.
“But our streak will be tested by a very good Chiefs team and one capable of scoring from anywhere on the park. They have great strikers, who move well off the ball so we have to keep our concentration for 90 minutes,” he added.
Siwelele drew 0-0 against MTN8 and Telkom Cup champions Platinum Stars in their last Absa Premiership encounter. Before that they defeated their provincial rivals Free State Stars 2-0 and University of Pretoria with the same scoreline this year.
“I am enjoying the skipper's armband and I believe in my leadership abilities. I am 100% focussed on Celtic having a great season," he concluded.
