Cape Town - Wits defender Bongani Khumalo says it is heartbreaking to have lost the game in stoppage time, following their 3-2 loss against Cape Town City.

The Clever Boys were condemned to their third consecutive league game without a victory, when Lebogang Manyama's last-gasp header gave Eric Tinkler's side the victory and propelled them to the summit of the league standings.

Khumalo, who netted his side's first goal, bemoaned his side's lack of killer instinct in front of goal, which he believes needs to be rectified if they are to challenge for league honors this season.

"It's a tough one to swallow, it's a cruel game," he said. "Obviously 1-0 down we did well to come back.

"We came out in the second half and had three unbelievable chances and we haven't taken them which is unfortunate, but at least we're creating chances.

"But to concede in the last minute again is just heartbreaking and it is something we need to sort out and make sure we see games through.

"It's what we don't want, it is the last thing we needed.

"We can't be conceding this many goals in a game first of all and we can't be conceding goals like that as well, especially in the last minute.

"We need to be strong enough to see games through. If we improve that we might have a chance. We've dropped points and we need to catch up," he concluded.
