Claasen confident of victory against Celtic


Maritzburg United midfielder Daylon Claasen believes that his side will continue where they left off, having drawn against Mamelodi Sundowns and Stellenbosch FC before the festive break.

The Team of Choice will be looking to use that foundation to go on and claim maximum points against Bloemfontein Celtic in the DStv Premiership clash at Harry Gwala Stadium.

The game is scheduled for 17:30 this evening.

“We picked up two solid points before the break and want to build on that,” says Claasen.

“We can only build from that because we had two good games and the guys did well, the way we played.”

The KZN-based outfit has a good head-to-head record against Phunya Sele Sele in the South African football top-flight. In the last 30 matches Maritzburg have won 13, drawn 11 and lost six.

The 30-year-old revealed that things seem to be clear-minded at the camp and the players are recharged following the short break they have had with their respective families.

“The guys are well prepared for Celtic but we know it’s not going to be an easy match because they are a dangerous team and anything can happen on the day.

“We know very well that they are not a team to underestimated,” says the former Bafana Bafana player in conclusion.
