Cape Town - Following their disappointing loss to Kaizer Chiefs last weekend, Stellenbosch FC coach Sammy Troughton said his troops were unfortunate to be on the losing side.

The National First Division (NFD) based outfit were eliminated from the Nedbank Cup after going 3-0 down to the Phefeni Glamour Boys in the round of 32 encounter played at the Athlone stadium on Saturday.

The former University of Pretoria mentor stressed that the Mother City based team lost due to their 'silly' errors committed in the crucial stages of the game.

However, the 52-year-old tactician praised his charges for their tremendous effort on the night, but also admitted his displeasure of being eliminated in the first round of the R7m competition.

"I think the results was a bit rough on us considering how we played," lamented Troughton.

"When you lose a cup game nobody remembers you. We played very well, our intentions were to give Kaizer Chiefs a good run for their money.
