Celtic defender Glenn Loovens hopes the club's stay away fans will continue to pour back into Parkhead if the Bhoys keep up their form.[LNB] Numbers are up on last season but still well short of capacity at Parkhead after finishing last term empty-handed.[LNB]The Hoops sit joint top of the SPL with Rangers after six games and Loovens claims more support from their fans could make all the difference.[LNB]"In the end, the fans stayed away a bit but it's getting better," he said.[LNB]"We had a good crowd for the last two games so hopefully we can play well and get them back.[LNB]"With them behind us, we are obviously going to be a lot stronger."[LNB]Celtic host Hamilton on Saturday in a game they will be expected to win as they bid to maintain their 100% record.[LNB]Loovens added: "We are Celtic and we should win games, especially at home, no matter who we play.[LNB]"It will be no different this Saturday. We will have to be sharp and strong and make sure we do well and take the three points.[LNB]"Hopefully the run can continue. We won't get carried away, we will just keep doing what we are doing at the moment and hopefully we can have a great run."[LNB]Celtic have conceded just two goals in the SPL so far this season and Loovens believes his partnership with Daniel Majstorovic has had a positive impact on his own game.[LNB]"It's going very well, he's a good experienced player," he said.[LNB]"We've got quite a young team so I think someone like him is a real asset.[LNB]"When you have a good player next to you, you play better yourself so I'm really pleased.[LNB]"The partnership is quite solid and hopefully we can keep it going.[LNB]"It's the best start so far. It's going well so we have to make sure we keep working hard in training and take the three points again this weekend."
