Bloemfontein Celtic coach Steve Komphela says he’s pleased with how his charges have controlled various phases of their games.

Komphela’s reaction follows the club’s hard-fought 1 – 0 victory against Orlando Pirates in a pulsating Absa Premiership clash at the Free State Stadium.

Left-back Bongani Sam got a decisive goal for the Phunya Selesele club in the first half.

Despite their boardroom politics and financial difficulties, Celtic have won all their three league matches and are now lying second on the log table.

Komphela says he’s happy that they are the only team who haven’t conceded a goal in the league.

Kompela says, “It talks to the discipline in defence and our defence starts from attack because most people think that defenders are the ones defending. No, individuals defend, groups defend, the team defends, but all those they start from attacking. Now, when you attack you be ready to defend. And when you have to defend, you defend knowing that you have to come out.”
