Seema Aims Top 8 Spot For Sekhukhune  

While pleased with Sekhukhune United’s win against relegation-threatened Cape Town Spurs at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday, coach Lehlohonolo Seema downplayed their chances of a top-four finish. 

Sekhukhune secured a narrow 1-0 victory at home, thanks to a wonder goal from fullback Asekho Tiwani. 

Seema, the former Bloemfontein Celtic coach, emphasized the importance of the clean sheet: “We are happy with three points, especially what is making it even sweeter is that we did not concede, and credit must go to the players definitely for that,” said Seema. 

Despite climbing to fourth after defeating Spurs, Seema remains focused on a top-eight finish rather than the top four. “No, I told you that I just want a top eight finish, top four no, not yet…let’s get six points and we will see after that,” affirmed Seema.  

This win further diminishes Spurs’ hopes of avoiding relegation, as they remain last on the log, eight points behind second-from-bottom Richards Bay. 

Seema expressed sympathy for their opponents: “I feel sorry for this team because you can see the way they are fighting. I don’t think that they deserve to be where they are,” pitied Seema. 

Sekhukhune’s next challenge is an away trip to Loftus Stadium on Tuesday (19:30) to face the unbeaten league leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns. 

Seema anticipates a similar challenge: “All 16 PSL teams are tough right now. Everyone’s fighting for something, which makes every game tough.”
