Bloemfontein Celtic interim coach Lehlohonolo Seema is pleased with his players' performance after holding Mamelodi Sundowns to a goalless draw on Wednesday night.

After the game, Seema credited his side’s work ethic and said they planned to bag four points against Downs and Polokwane City, whom they played prior to facing the African champions.

Siwelewele beat the Limpopo based-outfit 1-0 at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium last Sunday.

“The guys fought hard today (Wednesday). We were expecting a tough game. Credit must go to the players, they left everything out on the field,” Seema said in an interview after the Downs match.

“Our mission is accomplished, we were looking for four points in these two away games [against Polokwane City and Mamelodi Sundowns] and we have got the four points and can build from there.”

The Celtic coach believes his side could have sealed the victory, but youngster Dumisani Zuma who replaced Lyle Lakay in the second half, wasted a glorious opportunity with his shot going wide.

“We had our chances and we could have buried them. Zuma had the last chance and he could have taken a touch and called me from the bench to have come and finished it but he’s a youngster and he’ll learn from that.

“We are happy overall with the performance of the guys.”

Siwelewele, who are 11th on the league table with 23 points will now shift their focus into the Nedbank Cup fixture against NFD side Mbombela United at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.
