Celtic looking to convert in cup semis



The ability to create and convert chances will be key, according to Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen, when his side meet Free State Stars in Sunday's Telkom Knockout semifinal in Phuthaditjhaba.

"The game will be won by the team that will convert chances created," Larsen said on Thursday.

"We are a team that creates chances but have been letting ourselves down by not converting those chances.

"We have to be at our best for the match against Stars. They are a quality team and have a quality coach in Steve Komphela."

Larsen said his players were fired up for the derby clash as they continue the search for their first trophy in seven years.

"Everybody is looking forward to the game. It's a big game for the club," he said.

"We are expecting a tough game but we are confident if we come to the party we can advance to the final."

Larsen admitted his team's away form had been poor in the league, but he insisted it was not a major concern, with Stars hosting them for the penultimate round of the cup competition.

Celtic beat Chippa United 2-1 in Cape Town in the first round.

"I would have been overly concerned if we played away poorly, not creating and converting chances," he said.

"In all our away games, including the win against Chippa in the cup, we totally dominated the game.

"I think we are due for an away win against Stars."
