Johnson Left With Bitter Taste In His Mouth

AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson admits he was left with a bitter taste in his mouth following his side’s 3-3 draw with Mamelodi Sundowns in the league on Sunday.

AmaZulu took the lead in the first half through Butholezwe Ncube, but saw themselves trailing after goals from Phakamani Mahlambi and Toni Silva.

However, they equalised thanks to a strike from Jabulani Ncobeni and even took the lead for the second time in the 73rd minute when Bongi Ntuli found the back of the net.

Johnson, though, was bitter with his side’s inability to defend their lead as they conceded a third goal (and the win) in the 87th minute.

“I thought it was a good game of football,” Johnson told SuperSport.

“I thought my players did very well. They played very well.

“We planned for the goals and we got it.

 “In saying that we expected goals, with five minutes to go and you throw it away. Sometimes it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth.

“I thought we had Sundowns against the ropes and I think we should have won it, but all in all it has been a great game of football. I think one of the better games this year.”
