Cape Town - Baroka coach Wedson Nyirenda praised his side's performance
in the 1-0 defeat to Bloemfontein Celtic but admitted that poor finishing let
Celtic snatched victory in second half stoppage time
courtesy of a Ronald Pfumbidzai winner, stretching Bakgaga's winless run to
nine consecutive Absa Premiership matches.
"Very cruel, very painful loss today. What can we do?
That is what football is about. When you are careless, you give away the
game," conceded Nyirenda to SuperSport.
"I think we controlled the game. We managed them and at
some point, they looked tired. We had our chances. In the first half, we could
have locked up the game. As usual, it's the same cry we are crying.
"I don't know when we are going to finish this problem,
because every day, we are working on it.
"Only one chance at the end, they score. We had many in
the second half. We cannot score, but I think that's what [happens] when you
haven't done the right things sometimes."
Despite his praise for Baroka's build-up play, Nyirenda
refused to attribute the defeat to misfortune.
"I don't believe in luck. If you start believing in
luck, you become a lazy person, because nothing comes for nothing. You have to
do the right things," he said.
"We are doing the right things all this while from the
back up to the midfield ... but we do not have people to do the right things at
Baroka sit 15th on the table with seven points from 11
games. Only AmaZulu, who were docked six points earlier in the season, lie
