Supersport surprise Pirates
Supersport United coach Cavin Johnson admits his team was lucky to claim all three points.
JOHANNESBURG - Supersport United coach Cavin Johnson admits his team was lucky to claim all three points against Orlando Pirates.
Johnson made the statement after his team claimed a 2-1 victory over Pirates at Orlando Stadium in the PSL on Saturday.
Having seen his side dominated by Pirates in the first half, Johnson admits the victory was a smash-and-grab.
"We wanted to play football but in saying that I think Roger could have scored about six goals in the first half and six in the second half. When luck is not on your side and you play like we played today.
"We defended a lot of times but we won the game and like I said we stole the points."
Roger De Sa admits that his team's lack of composure in front of goal is the reason they failed to turn their dominance into a victory.
"I thought, especially in the first half, we dominated throughout and we just couldn't score. It's a problem, it's a concern and we just have to keep working on it.
"Well done to Cavin. I think he put a team that looked like they were going to play football and have a go. He changed it to a direct approach and it worked, that's the way it goes."
One player who can solve Pirates goal scoring problems is Lehlohonolo Majoro.
The player was at the stadium to watch the game, but De Sa says any potential deal for the player does not involve him.
"It's out our hands. It's something that is being dealt with at management level and we have to wait and see what happens."
