The AmaZulu head coach conveyed his dissatisfaction at his men not being able to convert opportunities which led to a narrow 1-0 loss to Baroka FC at the Old Peter Mokaba stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Johnson believes that Usuthu had the better chances and that they deserved at least a point for their efforts.
‘’I thought we deserved at least a point. We had the better opportunities but it just didn’t fall for us.’’
‘’We were playing against a team that was desperate, we were also not too comfortable on the ball, and we tried but we couldn’t get in the final third of the box,’’ he said.
Johnson however has given credit to his charges for being able to soldier on throughout the season despite challenges faced.
Going into the last hurl though the 60 year-old mentor says they must equip themselves adequately to fight for maximum points against Black Leopards and away to Bloemfontein Celtic.
‘’Credit must be given to the players, they have put their hands up the whole season to come out and really do the job in a lot of games.’’
‘’Everybody is a point away from the drop zone. I think that it’s very important that we go back home, prepare ourselves properly and come out and really fight to get the three points at King Zwelithini (against Black Leopards) next weekend, ’’ he concluded.
AmaZulu’s last home match of the season will see them battle Black Leopards on 04 May.
Kick Off is at 15:00.
