Bloemfontein - Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Serame Letsoaka admits that he was disappointed to see his side losing to Cape Town City early in the Telkom Knockout.

City had to wait until the closing stages of extra-time to eliminate Phunya Sele Sele with a 2-0 victory in the first round of the Ziwa Mo competition at the Cape Town Stadium.

Eric Tinkler's charges progressed to the next round courtesy of a Sibusiso Masina strike and an own goal by Kabelo Mahlalesa, to book a place in the quarter-finals of the R4m competition.

Letsoaka believes that they were in control of the game until defender Tshepo Rikhotso received his marching orders with eight minutes remaining on the clock. 

“Definitely I am disappointed with a loss because this is one cup competition which is easy,” laments Letsoaka.

“You only play three games in the Telkom Knockout then you reach the final and we were looking forward to go into the next round of the tournament.

“But the red card made every game plan we had collapse and we were in control of the game prior to that.

“And the red card really coasted us and I guess it’ll be our learning curve going forward.”
