I want to compliment my players – Seema


Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Lehlohonolo Seema is full of praise for his ‘hard working’ players that haven’t been getting a lot of game time for having an impact off the pitch by pushing the players that are in action week in and week out.

“The guys have been working very hard and especially I want to compliment the guys that haven’t been playing, they are the ones that are pushing the ones that are actually playing up to the limit where we want up, up to the fitness level we want them. You can see the guys most of the games now in the second half we don’t show any signs that we are getting tired,” said Seema.

Celtic beat struggling Black Leopards 4-2 at the Dr Molemela stadium in Bloemfontein on Sunday afternoon to move 2 points within the top 8.

The Phunya Sele Sele mentor said that getting maximum points at home in the second round is imperative as they will get a chance of improving their position on the log standings.

Very little is separating teams on the Absa Premiership log standings.

Only 2 points separates Celtic in 9th place and fifth-placed Orlando Pirates while in the relegation zone, a win for bottom of the table Polokwane City in their next game could see them jump to 11th position.

Celtic have played two games lesser than 7th placed Highlands Park and Seema said that they are playing many games in a short period of time but can’t really moan about it.

“As much as the games are on top of each other, it is the same for everyone, we cannot complain, the good thing is we played at home (against Leopards), there was no travelling.”

Siwelele’s next league encounter will be against Bidvest Wits in Milpark on Wednesday evening.
