Celtic are undefeated in the Absa Premiership and boast three consecutive wins which sees the outfit from the Free State holding steady in second position on the log.

In addition, the team have scored five goals and are yet to concede in the victories over Chippa United, Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates.

Speaking to Kickoff, Seema said: "We have just been scoring goals. The difference is just that this season the goals are coming you know, and that is the difference at the moment. If you score goals you know you will win games you see.

"Of course we've got a coach with good knowledge of the game, and you can see the team is managed very well on the field of play. Tactically we play with very high tactical discipline and that credit goes to the coach that can manage players, and while doing that, being able to get some goals it's a plus for us.

"For sure, coach Steve has brought some good management...you can see the highly tactical things that we are showing on the field of play.

"I can assure you that coach Steve coaches in Sesotho, English, Venda...he uses all the languages, it's not about English per say. It's about making the players understand what is required of them when they are on the field of play.

"He will try to engage with everybody. It's still a long way [to go], but ja we'll keep on working hard and not get carried away. And we'll see come the end of the season where we will end up. We are not yet the world beaters no, not yet. There is still a long way to go."
