Cape Town - Bidvest Wits forward Eleazar Rodgers is confident the goals will come after another wasteful display in front of goal against Cape Town City on Saturday in the MTN8 semi-final.

The university club's attack put in an unconvincing performance on the day but progressed to the MTN8 final with a 3-0 aggregate result.

Rodgers admitted to being guilty of missing a handful of clear-cut scoring opportunities at the Cape Town Stadium.

"What can I say, we are happy to go through to the final. We created a lot of opportunities and we never managed to score any," Rodgers told KickOff.

"I myself missed one, so very disappointing on that. But yeah, we made it through to the final. We did well in the first leg and I think it was a good team effort. Our defence was on tops tonight, thank God for that.

"It's nothing to panic about, but was definitely a concern in this match. But going forward, we are creating opportunities.

"From there we can just work on finishing that and putting it in the back of the net. I think we just have to take each game at a time and hopefully we will do better."
