Puzzle - Who is Knight and Who is Knave

This is a puzzle that i read in internet sometime last week and thought of sharing it here.

There is an island that has people who always speak truth (knight) or people who always lie (knaves). Unfortunately, you need find the way to the capital of the island. You are standing at the fork and there are two roads - left and right. There are three people, let us call them A, B and C, who are native of the island standing near the fork. You approach them, they tell you the following statements

Two of us are knaves, one of us is knight and the road in the left goes to the capital.

Will you be able to find which road goes to the capital - is it left or right?
