Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson bemoaned the side’s finishing after dropping points against Sekhukhune United.

Amakhosi went to the break 1-0 behind after Elias Mokwana broke the deadlock for Sekhukhune just before the interval but Ranga Chivaviro rescued a point for the Glamour Boys with a cracking half-volley late in the game.

Johnson says they made things difficult for themselves, especially squandering chances in the second half.

“I don’t think you could have said it better, we really made it difficult for ourselves, going into halftime 1-0 down and not playing the way we wanted to play,” Johnson told SuperSport TV.

“You come back in the second-half with a lot of energy in the game and you miss so many chances. I thought (Christian) Saile should have scored two goals. I thought in the end we had a few more chances but the last kick of a dice, Ranga, I thought we practiced better free-kicks than that.

“So ja, sometimes the players are confident, they can put it over the wall and then you accept that. But I thought we had ones that could have gone on the floor and we could have scored that last goal, then it was really well done coming back.

“But to come to Polokwane and take a point away from them, they played very hard against us. But this is what Kaizer Chiefs have to know, that every team we play against in the PSL, it’s always going to be a fight. And we had to do better in the first-half than we did today.”

The 65-year-old coach also opened up on his January transfer window plans and revealed that he would not be interested in making any signings.

“Like I said earlier, I’m not interested in getting any players at the moment. We need to work with what we have, make sure that they come to the party and make sure that they believe that they are Kaizer Chiefs players.”

“And that’s what we going to work on during the break and now we’ve got a little bit of a holiday, I think five or ten days, we get back and we’ve got a little pre-season camp and we see what happens when we come back,” he added.
