Johnson: Aces Tougher Than Chiefs

SuperSport United head coach, Cavin Johnson, says that he’s hoping his side can keep their 100% record this season against Mpumalanga Black Aces, but knows it will be tough.

Matsatsantsa have won all three of their league games since Johnson joined them at the start of the season, beating Free State Stars, University of Pretoria and Kaizer Chiefs along the way.

Today they face Aces , who have won just one game this season since gaining promotion from the NFD in their last campaign.

When asked if his side could keep up their 100% record Johnson told the Siya crew, “We’d like to keep it up, of course. The break was good and bad for us, it was bad because we lost a bit of momentum, but it was good because we also had a few guys with injuries who are now recovered.

“We’ve planned well, we’ve done our homework and we hope to go the stadium, play the best football we can play and hopefully come away with three points.

“We’re expecting it to be tough, possibly even tougher than the Kaizer Chiefs game, they haven’t bought bad players, have a good coach and have a point to prove, we have to give them respect. We’re hoping they haven’t quite gelled as a team yet.”

The two teams have met 16 times in the league since 1990, with AmaZayoni winning eight of them, while SuperSport have claimed just four victories.
