Bloemfontein Celtic skipper Patrick Tignyemb says they must win their Nedbank Cup last 16 clash against Mbombela United come Sunday afternoon.
Siwelele are at home this weekend and are motivated by the fact that they bagged four points out of six against Polokwane City and Mamelodi Sundowns.
The Cameroon-born keeper said they must hand their late lifetime president Dr Petrus Molemela a proper send off.
Molemela was laid to rest on Tuesday in the Free State after passing away a week ago from a long illness.
“The draw against Sundowns was a very good result for us and the fans, we know they are big team, African champions and to get a point against them is huge,” said Tignyemb to AfricanFootball.com.
“We are at home now to host Mbombela United and we must continue to get the results for us to remain a motivated side and ensure our fans are happy.

“We all know that we have not had a good run in the past, but we do not think about relegation, our minds are in the top eight.
“We are all happy as a team, we must go all out again and ensure we are in the next round of the competition.
“Yeah look, we don't now much about Mbombela, but the the fact they are in the cup at this stage means they are good.
“We have to prepare normally for this game because we do not take them for granted. We have not done well in the cup games in recent times.
“We need to change that and ensure we reach the final since we only did that in 2012 winning the Telkom Knockout cup.”
The match will be staged at Dr Molemela Satdium on Sunday afternoon at 15:30.
