“I don’t know what I need to say,” Johnson said to SuperSport, as quoted by iDiskiTimes.

“Yes, we missed very big chances. I think we missed four one-on-ones, Ashley [Du Preez] had four times one-on-ones, he should have scored the goal. We didn’t get it.

“But did we play well today? No, I don’t think so. I am not happy with my performance as our team, I think our team is a lot better than what we showed today.

“Yes, their goalkeeper gets man of the match, ja, it tells you a lot, but as a tactician, as a guy who sits on the bench, and watching his team play, and watching what his team went through at training sessions, and how they can play, and how they can be more confident on the ball, ja, we didn’t see a lot of that.

“We didn’t see enough of that, in order for us to, yes we missed the chances, but we should have really, really won the game,” the Chiefs tactician concluded.
