Johnson admits Chiefs should’ve done better against City

CAPE TOWN – Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson has admitted his side should’ve done better in executing the opportunities they created against Cape Town City.

The Glamour Boys played to a goalless draw at Athlone Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the DStv Premiership encounter.

Facing the media after the match, Johnson said Chiefs didn’t show enough hunger and desire on the day but were happy to get a point.

He says a lot could’ve been done better to change the outcome of the game.

“Look, when you look at the way we played, the way we approached the game, I thought we had the opportunities. But when they don’t put the opportunities in the bag, and you know that we do this particular thing at training, and you want the players to react to that, and they don’t, it’s not frustrating,” said Johnson.

“It’s just, guys, come on, let’s do that, and we get the goal – but we don’t do that.

“I mean, the one thing that I did not want to happen, and yes, they did it maybe once or twice, is cross the ball in the air.

“Because that’s like apple-picking for Darren Keet, we needed to come, and when we did come inside, we were not calm enough in order to execute the last moment of the game.”

Amakhosi are currently sitting on the seventh spot at the log with just 30 points.

Johnson admitted the performance on the day left him frustrated.

“I think everybody’s frustrated,” he said.

“You are frustrated when you’re writing, you can’t get the story.”

Chiefs’ next fixture will see them facing Stellenbosch FC at FNB Stadium on Tuesday.
