Johnson disappointed by loss but happy with his men
Even though Platinum Stars crashed out of the Nedbank Cup, coach Cavin Johnson was happy with the displays of his men.

Dikwena lost 1-0 to Golden Arrows in the quarterfinals of the Nedbank Cup at Princess Magogo Stadium, where they fought hard for a comeback. However Arrows held on to their lead. Dikwena threw everything at Arrows. One of the attacks saw Arrows player handle the battle in his own box but nothing was given. After the match Johnson, though disappointed by the outcome, was full of praise for his charges.

“Players put in a good shift. We had possession of the ball. We had a few chances. Not clear cut chances. In the first half, we had two which we should have scored. In the second half, the hand ball, what can you say? You can’t say anything the game is over. You can’t blame anyone. I thought the officiating should have been a little better but we go home with our tails between our legs. I have to give the players the ups. In the second half, their players were finished. They were defending. Sometimes we have to a little bit more clever, smart especially playing against team like this,” said Johnson.

With the Nedbank Cup out of the way, Dikwena now have to focus on the Absa Premiership and the CAF Confederation Cup.

“At least we get a break from playing a game every 48 hours. We can settle and really concentrate on the league which is our number one priority for us at the moment,” said Johnson.
