Modimolle Celtic FC coach André Mavulula hopes his team still stand a fighting chance to escape relegation, following a promising performance when they hosted Boys 2 Men FC of Vaalwater at Modimolle’s Tankeng Ground on Saturday, 17 March.

The two teams shared the spoils after playing to a 1-all stalemate, at the end of the 90 minutes of regulation time.

Mavulula told The BEAT claiming one point was better than going home empty-handed, especially at this time of the season. 

“We would have secured maximum points in this match. We scored first, but then got punished when we started losing focus. We had a rough season this time around, but it was not all doom and gloom,” he said.  

Modimolle Celtic FC is left with two matches to play, while Boys 2 Men FC has four last matches to play. 

Boys 2 Men FC captain Isaac Bjaloane was not happy with the result, but commended his team from putting up a good fight. 

Bjaloane said the team needed three points from that match, as it would have helped Boys 2 Men to move from position six to a better spot on the league log standings. 

On Saturday, 24 March Boys 2 Men FC will host Mookgophong Junior Stars, with the bottom of the table clash between Celtic FC and Opleft United FC scheduled for Modimolle’s Ephraim Mogale Stadium on Saturday, 7 April after the Easter Weekend break.
