Cape Town - SuperSport United coach Stuart Baxter concedes that Cape Town City were worthy victors in the Telkom Knockout final at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.

City edged Matsatsantsa 2-1 to clinch the TKO title at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. Goals from Aubrey Ngoma and Judas Moseamedi powered the Mother City club to victory.

Baxter also praised his counterpart Eric Tinkler for guiding City to silverware after only five months in charge of the club.

"I thought the first-half was probably quite even with chances both sides. I think they probably edged a number of chances but I thought the play was quite even in different ways," he told KickOff.

"I wasn't happy with the way that we were playing both defensively and offensively. I thought we came and did a little bit better and they were resting a little bit more and hitting on counters because they were happy with the 1-0 score-line.

"We gradually got to a better game around their box which meant we got an equaliser and if we had kept it for ten minutes I think we would have had a chance of going on to win it but we didn't. We know that's a critical phase of the game [after scoring] and they scored a goal immediately.

"We're losers today and second is really nothing though, is it? But we'll take it and we'll take all the pain that goes with it and maybe that will motivate us to keep playing."
