Cape Town - Bidvest Wits head coach Gavin Hunt was disappointed by his side's inability to score but said they "absolutely battered" Baroka FC despite a 1-0 defeat at the Bidvest Stadium on Tuesday.

Gerald Phiri struck an impressive direct free-kick from the edge of the area five minutes from the break, past goalkeeper Brandon Petersen to hand Bakgaka a decisive lead.

Despite Wits pushing for an equaliser, Baroka held on for an impressive away win.

"We absolutely battered them," Hunt said after the final whistle. "There's not much more I can say, you have to score when we created several great opportunities.

"In terms of a contest you have to give them credit for riding their luck and that's football sometimes you know.

"But I mean gee-wiz... absolutely battered them. Sometimes the ball doesn't fall for you but credit to them they battled away."

Wits next face Polokwane City in an Absa Premiership clash at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Kick-off is at 19:30.
