The former Pirates captain wants winning to become a habit for Siwelele after their impressive win over Abafana Bes'thende

Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Lehlohonolo Seema has urged his charges to remain grounded ahead of their clash with Mamelodi Sundowns.

Phunya Sele Sele recorded the biggest win of the 2019/20 Premier Soccer League (PSL) season thus far when they thumped Lamontville Golden Arrows 5-0 at home on Sunday.

Seema reflected on the victory over Abafana Bes'thende and explained why it is not his best match since he began his coaching career in 2013 as Ernst Middendorp's assistant at Celtic.

"Well, I would not say it is my best match since I started my coaching career," Seema told Goal.

"Yes, it is my biggest win, but we have had matches where we dominated and ended up on the losing side."

The retired central defender feels Celtic did not deserve to lose to Orlando Pirates in their opening league match of the new campaign.

"We played very well against [Orlando] Pirates recently, but we failed to collect the maximum points," the former Lesotho captain added.

"The victory against Arrows has been a massive boost for the players and I was very happy for our fans, who are always there for the team."

The 39-year-old tactician also stressed the importance of guarding against complacency as looks to ensure his charges develop a winning habit.

"However, we need to guard against complacency after winning with such a huge margin. The players should remain grounded," continued said.

"We have to make sure winning becomes a habit and collect maximum points in our upcoming games."

Celtic and Sundowns will lock horns in the MTN8 Cup quarter-final at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday.
