Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka admits that his team's performance in the goalless draw with Mpumalanga Black Aces was their worst of the season.

Celtic were somehow able to contain the title chasing Aces to a draw at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.

Letsoaka was counting his lucky stars that his team was not hammered with a huge score-line following their horrendous showing at home.

"I think this is the worst performance I have seen since I arrived here," Letsoaka told KickOff.

"Today we could not pass the ball, we could not defend properly, we could not track properly, so both offensively and defensively we were very poor. 

"I wouldn't know what caused the whole thing, but we could not play, pass the ball, and when we defended we could not defend properly. But we changed things around in the second half and said 'If we can just take a point', let's just be happy with a point.

"We were very fortunate. This is a game we could have lost by three, four goals, but we came up with a point. I'm very happy with the point we collected today. I'm not really sure we deserve it, but I'm very, very happy."
