Lehlohonolo Seema: We Got Punished
Bloemfontein Celtic assistant coach Lehlohonolo Seema admits lapses in concentration cost his side.
Celtic failed to build on last weeken's derby win as they were thumped 4-1 by Sundowns at Lofstu Versfeld on Saturday afternoom.
“I think we started very well and we knew that Sundowns could hurt us, but we kept on defending. You can see that Sundowns were looking at the pockets on the side, but in the first half the movement of Percy (Tau), we were guarding it very nicely, but what an experienced team,”Seema told SuperSport after the game.
“You can see their experience come through. If you can’t defend, you must understand that a team like Mamelodi Sundowns will keep on coming at you. They have a lot of different movement.
“It was unfortunate that we conceded the first goal at a set piece because that is a standard situation where everyone should be focused and marked.
“Other than that I cannot fault the guys, it is not easy to score against Sundowns.
“The quality and experience of Sundowns showed in the end. It is a team that is gelling well.
“We have done well but the score line is not good for us and the goal difference against us at the end of the day.
“I think the guys played very well according to the plan, but they had a lapse of concentration here and there and then you get punished.”
