Kaizer Chiefs coach Cavin Johnson conceded his side were not good enough as they succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Stellenbosch on Tuesday night.

Devin Titus scored the only goal of the game in first-half stoppage time at the FNB Stadium to condemn Amakhosi to their eighth defeat of the season and leave the club in seventh place in the DStv Premiership.

Stellies, meanwhile, edged away from the CAF chasing pack onto 38 points in second place – four clear of Sekhukhune United in third and five points ahead of Orlando Pirates, Cape Town City and SuperSport United.

Speaking after the game, an unimpressed Johnson said on SuperSport: “The players need to be better technically.
“You have to pass the ball better. You are 1-0 down after 45 minutes, you have to be confident, you are Chiefs, play proper football. That was very disturbing from my players.”

Johnson fielded the same players for this game as in the 0-0 draw with Cape Town City last time out.

The head coach added: “I thought the performance we put on tonight was not even half of what we had on Saturday.

“What can I say, we have to go back and try again to put different players on the pitch and see what happens.

“We just didn’t get it right. I am not happy with the performance of a lot of players, but we have to fix it and come back. 

“We have another game against Chippa. We need the points more than any other team in the PSL.”
