Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Lyle Lakay says the team’s start into the league this season is very disappointing.

Lakay, however, says Siwelele believe they can turn things around as soon as they fix their goal-scoring problem.

The Free State outfit, who are 13th on the log after collecting only five points, parted ways with Serame Letsoaka last week, bringing on board John Maduka and Lehlohonolo Seema on interim basis, but the former Celtic players couldn’t inspire the team to victory, losing 1-0 to Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night.

“We are disappointed with the way we started the season. We have not been scoring, which is our main problem, but again, we have not been playing badly. We just have to work on our finishing and hopefully, the wins will come,” said Lakay.

“It is football, we have been through this situation twice before. The coach that came tried to motivate us as much as possible, hopefully, we can just carry on and keep the spirit up.”

Lakay added the team’s goal is to finish on top four or three in the league table, adding that should they start winning games, they will get there.

“We still want to reach our goal, which is to finish in top three or top four. In the league, I believe if you can win three games in a row, you can get yourself up there.”
