Celtic can destroy Birds' high hopes


Kick off is at 15h30.

The Birds eased the pressure off coach Ian Gorowa on Wednesday evening against the Brazilians thanks to goals from James Chamanga, Cecil Oersen and Maimane Phiri to move level with Celtic and Platinum Stars.

However, the hosts will not have forgotten that Phunya Sele Sele defeated them 2-0 at Seisa Ramabodu earlier in the season, with goals from Moses Spandeel and Ntokozo Sikhakhane.

That victory, along with the fact that Khabo Zondo’s side got back onto the winning trail with a 3-2 defeat of AmaZulu last weekend, suggests that the chances of a Celtic ‘double’ in the league over their opponents is not too far fetched.

Birds’ coach Ian Gorowa, however, is still flying high after his mid-week success and believes that he still has a great future with the Dube Birds.

Gorowa tells snl24.com/kickoff that the media is blame for putting pressure on him and trying to unsettle the team by proposing that he quit.

“It’s the media that are trying create problems. Despite failing to win one in four games, management has been fully behind me and that has given me confidence to move forward with this team.

“I’m not the only one feeling the heat, all the coaches in PSL are under pressure to get results. We have been just going through rough patch and with the victory over Sundowns, we may have turned the corner now.”
