AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson reflected on his side’s draw with Bloemfontein Celtic.

Usuthu fought back to hold Siwelele to a 1-1 stalemate in an Absa Premiership match which was played at the Dr Molemela Stadium on Sunday.

Jacky Motshegwa gave Celtic the lead in the 82nd minute, but Mhlengi Cele snatched a late equalizer for AmaZulu with four minutes left on the clock.

Johnson was pleased with how his charges performed in the Free State Province capital, Bloemfontein.

“I am satisfied because we were playing against a good team in Celtic,” Johnson said.

“I thought it was an open game as both teams were playing attacking football on the day.

The draw saw AmaZulu remain 11th on the league standings, while Celtic moved up to ninth spot on the table.

“It is nice playing against a team that threatens you and you also able to threaten them,” he continued.

“My goalkeeper (Siyabonga Mbatha) made some good saves that kept us in the game. They scored and we also managed to score.

“We almost stole it towards the end of the game. But it was not to be on the day,” he added.

“However, I am happy to go back home with a point because this league is very unpredictable.

“Whatever point you can take back home it is always worth the money.”

Usuthu will host Orlando Pirates in a league match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday. Kick-off is at 15h00.
