Sono frustrated by defeat

Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono feels his side let themselves down in the final third following Thursday's 1-0 defeat against Bloemfontein Celtic.

Ezenkosi looked in control for much of this week's Free State Stadium encounter, but would eventually fall to Geofrey Massa's first-half strike after proving wasteful in front of goal themselves, including Charlton Mashumba's saved penalty kick.

And, speaking of the result, which has left Cosmos still winless this season, an upbeat Sono said: "I thought we did well. Had we converted that penalty, I think it could have been a different story. We controlled the game, and in the second half we created a few chances but we missed those chances.

"I knew if we kept possession, Celtic will run around - when you play Celtic, you play against a 12th man - the guys at the back (crowd). But in the second half they were quiet as we were controlling the game and they never got the ball, and were frustrated a little bit.

"But it's football, we'll have to carry on plugging for the next game."
