Johnson rues Usuthu’s missed chances against Baroka

AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson was left to rue Usuthu’s missed chances against Baroka FC on Wednesday night.

The two sides drew 1-1 in an Absa Premiership match which was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban.

“In one moment I thought we had them on the ropes. We could have won the game,” Johnson said.

Bakgaga Ba Ga Mphahlele opened the scoring through Gift Motupa, who scored from the penalty spot on the half-hour mark.

However, Usuthu restored parity four minutes later through Rhulani Manzini, who scored with an overhead kick to make it 1-1.

“But we gave away a soft penalty in the early stages, that is how football is. Then we had to fight back to get the one goal,” he continued.

“I thought we dominated possession and we played very well. We had good moments during the match.

“We came out holding the ball much better in the second-half and we created clear cut chances,” the former Platinum Stars coach added.

“I don’t think they had many chances. We could have done better in the final third.”

The draw saw Usuthu remain ninth on the league standings, while Baroka also remain at the top of the log.

AmaZulu are scheduled to host Kaizer Chiefs in their next league match on the 22nd of November 2017.

The encounter will be played at the King Zwelithini Stadium. Kick-off is at 19h30.
