Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder Musa Nyatama says the team held a vital, "eye-opening" meeting with club chairman Max Tshabalala on Monday.
The sit-down was aimed at resolving any issues affecting the performance of coach Ernst Middendorp's charges, who are 11th on the Absa Premiership table with six points from as many games.
"It was imperative," Nyatama told Celtic's official website.
"We had a genuine and open discussion with the chairman. Not only was he encouraging us but he allowed us to express our opinions. We ironed out some issues and most significantly came up with solutions.
"I must add that having such meetings builds a pleasant atmosphere and makes us realise how important the brand Celtic is. It was an eye-opener and players collectively agreed to work cohesively towards a common goal."
Nyatama is confident his side will bounce back under Middendorp's tutelage, insisting team morale is high.
"What can I say? It's beyond great, the technical team has been phenomenal. They are pushing us hard at training and also encouraging us to be resilient and focused all the time.
"Yes, we might not have started well, but personally believe we will recuperate and once we start winning it will be difficult for our opponents to match us."
Middendorp's men next visit SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on 27 September.
