Cape Town – Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt was not shy to criticise his players after suffering a defeat and being knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Jomo Cosmos.

Jomo Sono's side took the lead on the stroke of half-time with a goal created by his son, Matsilele. Onassis Mntambo applied the finish touch at the second attempt, although the Clever Boys hit back in the second-half with an equaliser from Mogakolodi Ngele.

There were no further goals at the Tsakane Stadium and the game went to extra time and then penalties, where Ezenkosi emerged 5-4 victors.

"It's difficult to play against Cosmos, we knew what we were up against and all credit to them - they did what they had to and got through," Hunt said as quoted by KickOff.

"Tomorrow, no one will remember how they got through but that they did so. I don't know how much possession we had in and around their box, but a lot of players that I gave a chance to weren't there tonight.

"You learn a lot about people when given a chance and they don't do it for us. So we'll regroup and start again but I'm very disappointed because I thought we did enough to try and work [our way through].

"It's always difficult to play against Jomo [Sono] and we knew that, so we should have been better."
