Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson was unhappy that his side was unable to make the most of their one-man advantage during their 1-1 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Free State club took the lead through a Lyle Lakay strike in the 36th minute, while Sibusiso Msomi grabbed the equalizer for Dikwena in the 50 minutes into the game.

However, Celtic had to see out the final moments of the game with only 10 men after Bevan Frasnman had a clash of heads with Ndumiso Mabena with minutes remaining and had no substitutions remaining.

"This time of the season I think a point is good enough," Johnson said after the game.

"I thought we had a few moments in the first half, we kept some possession but couldn't make the right decisions.

"They have good runners with speed who will catch you out wide in the channels.

"Credit to the boys, we ended the game with a man advantage we should have taken advantage of that situation and that for me is a concern."
