Bloemfontein Celtic's crisis meeting about the team's poor run has left them ready to take out their frustrations on Orlando Pirates tomorrow - so claims the club's midfielder Musa Nyatama.

"It's been a frustrating time for us, but we will go all out against Pirates," he promised.

Phunya Sele Sele's technical team, players, management and some supporters met on Monday for a "heart-to-heart" meeting. This was on the back of the club winning just one of their last 15 matches.

Celtic are 12th on the log.

"We all promised to up our game, to give 120%. Who thought Pirates would be beaten by Free State Stars the other day? Pirates are beatable so anything is possible," he said.

Pirates may have lost 1-0 against Free State Stars nine days ago, but their last match was a morale-boosting 3-1 win over Mpumalanga Black Aces five days ago. And Bucs coach Eric Tinkler says "you are only as good as your last game".

"What is important is we are distancing ourselves from the teams at the bottom, which was our first objective and now it is time to try to secure our position in the top eight," Nyatama said.
