Kaizer Chiefs interim coach Cavin Johnson slammed his underperforming players for failing to convert chances in their goalless draw against Royal AM on Sunday.

Royal AM produced a great defensive effort in Harry Gwala Stadium, with their goalkeeper Patrick Nyame making four big saves to deny Chiefs a goal.

Ashley Du Preez was guilty of missing three one on one opportunities in the match.

Johnson expressed his disappointment over the team’s performance and inability to convert chances.

“I don’t know what I need to say. Yes, we missed very big chances. I think we missed four one-on-ones, Ashley (Du Preez) had four times one-on-ones, he should have scored the goal. We didn’t get it.

“But did we play well today? No, I don’t think so. I am not happy with my performance as our team, I think our team is a lot better than what we showed today.

“Yes, their goalkeeper gets man of the match, ja, it tells you a lot, but as a tactician, as a guy who sits on the bench, and watching his team play, and watching what his team went through at training sessions, and how they can play, and how they can be more confident on the ball, ja, we didn’t see a lot of that.

“We didn’t see enough of that, in order for us to, yes we missed the chances, but we should have really, really won the game,” Johnson said to SuperSport TV.

Johnson insisted his side failed to play combination football even though the pitch was in good condition.

“We need to be a lot better on the ball. The conditions were perfect for football but it looked like my players were not good enough to play in perfect conditions.

“Maybe in 35 degrees with the sun shining they would do better. It is back to the drawing board,” added Johnson.
