Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Lehlohonolo Seema says he felt he had no point to prove after seeing his club snatch all three points against Orlando Pirates.

Seema spent five years at Pirates as a player where he played mainly in defence for the Sea Robbers. He has since moved into coaching and is now in charge of Siwelele on an interim basis.

The 36-year-old oversaw Celtic's 2-1 Premiership victory over Bucs on Tuesday and admitted afterwards that he was not out to show up his old side.

"I have nothing to prove against Pirates. I will always be grateful for the opportunity Dr Irvin Khoza gave me," he told reporters.

"I understand how it feels to play for a great team like Pirates and get these results so I feel for the players and technical team.

"I think as a coach you work closely with your analyst to learn the opposition's strengths and weaknesses."

The result sees his team move up to 12th position in the Premiership standings, while Pirates have dropped to eighth.
