The 2-1 loss was Matsatsantsa’s fourth loss in five games, and a second defeat in succession following their capitulation against Free State Stars that saw them give away a two goal cushion to lose 3-2.

Following last night’s defeat, Johnson reportedly told the players, “I think this is goodbye, I know my head is on the chopping block. If I’m still here tomorrow then we’ll start working on beating Kaizer Chiefs, if not then you must keep pushing.”
