Bloemfontein Celtic coach Lehlohonolo Seema was full of praise for his players after their 3-1 win over Highlands Park at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Tuesday night.
Punyas Sele Sele secured their third win of the season with goals from Sera Motebang, Ndumiso Mabena and Menzi Masuku, while highlands scored their goal through the in-form Peter Shalulile.
“We are delighted if you look at the atmosphere in the Stadium these guys worked very hard and if you look at tonight, technically we were spot on and the only mistake we did was when they scored their goal,” reflected the former Orlando Pirates captain.
“We knew they are a hard-running and very technical team that will always push us to the limit, and we had to think smart.
“All these players impressed me because I was looking on the bench, they were amazing, and they were pushing the guys inside so I will never single out anyone.
“Those that were on the bench and the once who were in the field of play everyone pushed, you can see that the group that we are having here they are up to something and if we can keep working hard we will get there.”
The win takes Celtic to 9th position on the Absa premiership after 9 games. They have won 3, drew 3 and lost 3.
They will face Maritzburg United away on Friday night in their next league fixture.
