AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson reflected on his side’s narrow defeat to Orlando Pirates.

The Buccaneers edged out Usuthu 2-1 in an Absa Premiership match which was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Mabhuti Khenyeza gave Usuthu an early lead, but goals from Musa Nyatama and Thabo Qalinge handed Bucs the victory.

Johnson, who was happy with his side’s performance, felt that his charges were unlucky on the day.

“I thought we had the better chances in the first half. I thought we played good football,” Johnson said.

“Overall, it was a good game of football for the 9000 people that attended. I think they saw one of the better games of the season.

The defeat left AmaZulu placed 11th on the league standings – two points behind eighth-placed Bloemfontein Celtic.

“One is looking to win the league, the other is looking for points into the top eight,” he continued.

“And I thought we both gave a good account of ourselves.

“It was unlucky for us today to go and lose this. But we can take a lot out of this game into the last three games.”

AmaZulu will take on Platinum Stars in their next league game which is scheduled to be played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on the 25th of April 2018.
