Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic interim coach Lehlohonolo Seema lavished praise on the Premiership side after gaining a credible 0-0 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns.

The goalless draw moved the relegation threatened side into 11th place, a single point above Orlando Pirates and stretched their run without conceding a goal to four games.

Seema, who's serving as caretaker coach until manager Luc Eyamel's contractual dispute with former club Polokwane City is resolved; claimed Siwelele met their target with four points in their last two league games.

"The guys fought hard today. We were expecting a tough game. Credit must go to the players, they left everything out on the field," Seema said after the game. 

"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.

"We had our chances and we could have buried them. [Dumisani] 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."
