Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Serame Letsoaka believes Free State Stars goalkeeper Thela Ngobeni was the only thing standing between his side and a win.

Ngobeni made numerous important saves to keep Celtic at bay in the goalless draw at Goble Park on Wednesday.

Letsoaka was also disappointed with the performance of new signing Khethokwakhe Masuku in the game.

"I think this is a game we could have wrapped up in the first half. I think their goalkeeper stood between us and victory, hence the keeper is man of match," Letsoaka told KickOff.

"I think we did everything to score a goal, unfortunately we couldn't get that and their keeper saved them. We are building from this performance going forward. One point from this, first point of the season, we can only build from here and get stronger.

"In patches in midfield there were times where they actually overpowered us. They had numbers in midfield. On the day Masuku did not come to the party. That is one player I thought would definitely come to the party but it didn't happen. You can see he is still struggling with a hamstring.

"I think we have enough depth in the team. There are three or four players that could have played. Dumisani Zuma is still on the bench, he is one of the players that could have played."
