A well executed game plan from Bloemfontein Celtic this afternoon kept us on the back-foot from kick off and did not allow us to get into the action.
From kick off, the home side pushed up behind the defence and scored within the opening minute to open their account against us.
For the full 90 minutes, we were closed down on the attack and punished for the mistakes we made on the field.
Celtic countered quickly and used the ball and possession well.
An early change in the first half, bringing Mutizwa onto the attack, created a number more chances for us, but the Celtic keeper played out of his boots to keep a clean sheet, and his team on a positive path in the game.
With the break coming up, the side will have some time to correct the mistakes made this afternoon before we face Chippa United on the 24th at home.
