Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic head coach Veselin Jelusic says he can't fault the efforts of his side after the 1-0 Telkom Knockout final defeat to Wits on Saturday.

Vincent Pule's last-minute goal settled the final at the Princess Magogo Stadium after evenly fought encounter with the Absa Premiership Champions.

While the Serbian tactician admits the chances came few and far between, he feels their commitment shown proves that the squad will go on to become a real force in the domestic scene.

"I'm disappointed with the results but not disappointed with the commitment from the players. We tried our best, it was a very competitive game," he told SuperSport TV.

"The match didn't have too many chances but unfortunately for us, they scored two minutes before the end of the game. They won, so congratulations to Wits.

"It's proof of the quality of our team. We are not going to stop here, we'll use it as motivation to continue to work and achieve better results in the future," he added.

"It is part of the game, we lost concentration in the latter part of the game. There is no difference to score in the first minute of the game and the last minute of the game. We competed and gave our best but we lost, so again congratulations to Wits."
