Caretaker coach Teboho Moloi has urged Chippa United supporters to come out and be the team’s 12th men when they play Bloemfontein Celtic in a Premier Soccer League fixture at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium tomorrow (3pm).

Tomorrow’s game will be Moloi’s first home assignment since taking over from axed Dan Malesela. The former Orlando Pirates player has only two points under his belt from the two matches he has been in charge of so far.

Chippa were held in a boring goalless draw against Platinum Stars and that was followed by a 1-1 draw against Supersport United.

He will be hoping to clinch his first win for Chippa, especially playing in front of the home crowd.

“We need to make Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium or the East London stadium Sisa Dukashe our slaughter houses, whereby visiting teams know that it won’t be easy to get points,” the coach said.

“They need to be intimidated because we even have our 12th men that will be behind us.”

Asked if he would be making any changes to the team Moloi said he would like to keep that as a surprise for the supporters, so that they can come and see what is in store for them.
