Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic caretaker coach Lehlohonolo Seema says he will not let emotions get the better of him when his side face Orlando Pirates.

The game, a final league clash of 2016 for both clubs, takes place at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday night.

Phunya Sele Sele are without a win in four games and lost 3-0 at home to Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

Former Pirates central defender Seema says he is looking forward to returning to club he once played for, but says that emotions won't cloud his vision and that he is focused on trying to help Celtic end the year on a positive note.

"It will be good to go back to Orlando Stadium this time around not as a player but as an opposition coach sitting on the other bench‚" he told the SowetanLIVE.

"There's no emotions and there is nothing to prove against Pirates. I only have good memories on that field and for the Orlando Pirates family.

"We are on the wrong side of the table. We are fighting for a point and every point to us it's like oxygen.

"Three points is what we need to give to our supporters so that they can have something to talk about during the holidays because the results have not been coming."

Siwelele are in 13th position, just one point above the relegation zone.

Kick off is at 19:30.
