City FC has not won a home game in 2017 season, except their victory through a penalty shootout over Ajax Cape Town.

The Limpopo outfit, Polokwane City FC hopes to reach their first major final when they host Bloemfontein Celtic FC at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on Sunday.

He says they want to break their record by reaching the finals.

“It is shown the growth in the team also we want to make a record and I think we are in the right track to make a record as we said we qualify in the top eight last season’s now we are in the semi-final of Telkom.”

“We are going to the North to face one of the toughest opponent is a good competition one must go down it will require us to double our efforts preparation.”
