Kaizer Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs coach Cavin Johnson was disappointing his side wasn’t able to overcome TS Galaxy in their DStv Premiership clash on Tuesday night.

The two sides played out a 2-2 draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium where Ranga Chivaviro opened the scoring with 18 minutes on the clock.

Sphiwe Mahlangu levelled with a 32nd minute penalty before Edmilson Dove was dismissed with a second yellow card on the stroke of half-time.

Nonetheless, Chivaviro reestablished Amakhosi’s lead with a 50th minute goal, but a win was just out of reach for the home side as Mahlangu found the back of the net again with just 14 minutes of the match remaining.

Chiefs also had substitute goalkeeper Brandon Peterson dismissed for his remonstrations from the bench, following a strong tackle on Pule Mmodi.

The result left the club in eighth place on the league standings with three games of the season to play, while Galaxy are up to fifth, with four games still remaining.

Speaking after the tie, Johnson explained that his side created enough chances to win the tie, even with 10 men, having recently experienced being a man down early on in their previous 5-1 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns.

He told SuperSport: “When you get a red card again, you scratch your head and ask yourself ‘what happened?’

“I thought we played better with ten men this week than last but this was a different team (we were playing).

“I thought we had better chances than they (Galaxy) had when we had ten men and they had 11.

“The players worked hard and stayed compact, but when we did go on the break, Ranga (Chivaviro) had a very good opportunity to make it 3-2.

“They missed two big chances in the first six minutes.

“But we came out of it, then we got a goal when we pressed them and won the ball. They came back and got a pen, we made it 2-1 and I thought we had a lot of chances but we didn’t defend a corner correctly and it was 2-2.”

Chiefs are back in action against AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday.
