But goals from the hosts Mitch Brundle and a brace from Balanta left them with nothing to show for their efforts.

"The elite teams find a way, as were the best teams in our league last year, they were strong enough and determined enough to come a little disappointment," he said.

"We had 90 minutes to respond and show character within, but there was a distinct lack of it today (Saturday), and that's why we've let our supporters down.

"100 per cent that's my fault, I'm the manager and I probably won't sleep until I see the players again and can try my hardest to put it right."
