Bloemfontein - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen said his side could have changed the complexion of the game should they have managed to convert their golden opportunity.

Phunya Sele Sele lost 2-1 on aggregate, to the defending champions in the semi-final second leg of the R8m competition at the FNB stadium courtesy of George Lebese strike.

Celtic had their moment of glory in the 19th minute of the game when Keagan Buchanan failed to hit the target, after a well-worked move, with only the goalkeeper to beat.

Larsen, however, has admitted that an early goal for his side could have been a complete game changer for his team but also insisted that he will not point fingers to any of his troops as they have shown some tremendous efforts to win the game.

“That was definitely a key moment of our game,” said Larsen.

“That key moment of our early chance could have changed the whole complexion of the game.

“But even after that moment we created a lot of chances again but I think we didn’t create enough clear cut chances as we would have liked.

“But I can’t fault anyone in the team for that and I am really proud of the boys because we wanted them to leave something positive in the park and that’s exactly what they did.

“We are very happy with the way they performed and we are heading into the right direction.”
