AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson was left to rue the team’s missed chances against Chippa United on Sunday afternoon.

The Chilli Boys secured a 2-0 victory over Usuthu in an Absa Premiership match which was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

“In the first-half there were no goals scored. But we could have managed the game much better. I believe that we were the better side and we could have scored one or two goals in the first-half,” Johnson said.

“However, the players did not move the ball properly. We found ourselves wanting at times and we could not make at least three passes.

AmaZulu attackers Rhulani Manzini and Ovidy Karuru both missed chances in an entertaining first-half.

“We came back looking much better in the second-half. But we made two mistakes and they scored twice then we were 2-0 down. They created the two chances and they scored,” he continued.

“I cannot remember how many chances we missed today. That’s the game of football. If we had played an extra 90 minutes we would have probably lost 2-0 again.

“We could not score today. We hit the upright and the woodwork. Their goalkeeper made two or three saves and some saves were made by their outfield players.”

Johnson stressed the importance of winning their next league game which is against Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

“Now, we should go back and pick ourselves up. We need to make sure we come out much better in our next league game. It is getting later and later into the season,” he added.

“We need to collect points somewhere. So, yes, we have to come out a lot harder and do things a lot better in our next game.”

Kick-off between Baroka and AmaZulu is at 15h30.
