AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson acknowledges that his team did not come to the party today as the Usuthu went down 3-1 to Bloemfontein Celtic at the Sisa Dukashe stadium on Saturday afternoon in their final match of the 2018/2019 Absa Premiership season.
Johnson believes that the team could have maintained the intensity of the game more efficiently after they took the lead early in the first half.
‘’In the first few minutes we lifted our hands with the goal, we should’ve taken it to the next level afterwards.’’
‘’I wasn’t happy with the second half of my players, Celtic scored and we had to chase the game afterwards,’’ he added.
The 60 year old tactician however gave props to his side for their resilience throughout the season in spite of challenges that the green and white KZN based side encountered.
‘’It’s been a rollercoaster ride for the mere fact that we were docked points but the players have to get the credit as well for maintaining the status and that’s it,’’ he said.
‘’We’ve got to go back and thank the football gods for helping us to keep our status within the PSL, but I think we have a lot of work to do in the pre- season,’’ he concluded.Share
