Alfred Ndengane brushes off Bloemfontein Celtic start, backs Serame Letsoaka

Bloemfontein Celtic utility man Alfred Ndengane does not feel the club has started the season poorly despite being at the bottom of the standings.
Celtic have a point from three games following a draw with Free State Stars and defeats to Maritzburg United and joint-leaders Golden Arrows.
Ndengane points out that Stars, Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns are also still without a league win, although the latter has only played once in the Absa Premiership this season due to CAF Champions League commitments.
"I don't believe we started badly, it's still too early and there are a lot of teams who are currently without a win," Ndengane tells KickOff.com. "Above those teams there are lot of other teams that managed to get only one win. That means if we can win our next match we will have four points."
Phunya Sele Sele's position on the log has put coach Serame Letsoaka under scrutiny, but Ndengane insists the players are happy to be working under the former Arrows boss.
'We are happy as players with our coach. Our main problem is scoring goals. By that I'm not saying I'm blaming our strikers, everyone should contribute when it comes to scoring. It's just that we can't get results. If we can get just only one win we will turn things around. Only if we can win the Platinum Stars game, but according to what I've seen in our preparations, I think we'll come with a different approach against them."
Siwelele next visit ninth-placed Platinum Stars at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on October 15.
