Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka bemoaned his side's lack of cutting edge in front of goal following a 1-0 defeat to Bidvest Wits in the Nedbank Cup on Friday night.

Siwelele bowed out at the Last 32 stage of the competition as James Keene's first-half goal proved to be enough for Wits to clinch a place in the Last 16.

Letsoaka admits his side's poor finishing has become a major cause for concern, but feels it's only a matter of time before his charges start finding the back of the net.

"It was another good game of football from Bloemfontein Celtic, but we just can't hit the back of the net," Letsoaka told SuperSport in his post-match interview. 

"We play all the football, we do everything, and now we even miss penalties - it's difficult times.

"We have been doing everything [to fix the problem]. We have been working in the final third, we have been working on finishing - we've done everything to make sure we try and get the goals, and we will continue to do that.

"[But] the goals will come - they have to come at one stage."
