Bloemfontein - Bloemfontein Celtic interim coach Lehlohonolo Seema said it was just an unfortunate moment for his troops in dropping two much-needed points after Khethowakhe Masuku's penalty struck the crossbar.

Phunya Sele Sele and SuperSport United shared the spoils in their Absa Premiership encounter played at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.

Celtic felt hard done by as "Bherezza" missed a golden opportunity to claim maximum points following their dominance throughout the game.

Seema, 36, praised the former Orlando Pirates winger for his confidence in stepping up to take responsibility for the team.

"Yes things like that happen in the game of football, we understand,” Seema said.

"He raised his hand to take a penalty because he was confident of scoring it and we can’t blame him for that, it takes a lot of bravery to step up.

"We have been practicing penalties every single day at training and he has been scoring them. So we believed that he’ll score but it wasn’t to be.

"We dropped two crucial points now but we need to move on and focus on the next game and it was just an unfortunate moment for us not to score."
