Mamelodi Sundowns captain Hlompho Kekana on Tuesday said that his side are eager to maintain their unbeaten run when they host a tricky Bloemfontein Celtic side in a league clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

The defending champions have started their title defence in formidable fashion going unbeaten in their opening eleven matches and lead the standings over Swallows FC on goal difference.

Masandawana captain, Kekana said ahead of Tuesday's clash that they were keen to maintain their impressive run but were weary of the threat posed by their opponents.

"It is refreshing to know that we are going into this game without having lost a match," Kekana told the Sundowns website. "It allows us to go out and get more wins and we want to continue with the good run that we are having."

"Playing against Celtic is not going to be easy or smooth as they play an awkward system," Kekana added. "The boys have worked hard in the past two days in preparations for the game.

"We are playing at home and the objective is simple and that is to win and get the three points that the team requires. The team looks ready and refreshed and we are looking forward to the match and hopefully, we get the win and continue being unbeaten."

Kick-off is at 17:00.
