Seema: I feel for the players


Golden Arrows head coach Lehlohonolo Seema says he's disappointed that his charges "have nothing to show" after a good performance against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Arrows narrowly lost 1-0 to the Brazilians, where they had better chances in the first stanza but could not cancel out Gaston Sirino's goal for Sundowns just before the hour-mark.

Abafana Bes'thende had a penalty in the latter stages of the second stanza but Michael Gumede missed the target.

"I think if we can play like this going forward I think we'll win a lot of games and I think today we applied ourselves very well," Seema told SuperSport TV.

"Before the game I said during the international break we went back and said, 'let's now look at ourselves and try to implement our way of playing' and today it was evident.

"It happened that we did not get anything out of this effort the guys have put today and the only positive thing is that we know what we did before this game and we just gonna continue doing it.

"Because we'll get a lot of wins if we perform like this. I feel for the players because after working so hard against a good side like the opponents of today and you have nothing to show.

"It's one of those things when you say three days later we're playing against another difficult game in Cape Town, Cape Town City and we need to pick them up and say 'gents let's continue with the same effort, same attitude, same hunger, same determination' we can get a lot of wins from this performance," he added.
