AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson felt his troops were a better footballing side than Kaizer Chiefs in their Absa Premiership encounter.
Usuthu suffered their first defeat on home soil this season after going down 3-2 to the Soweto giants.
However, Johnson did lament his side for not punishing Chiefs when they had them ‘on the ropes’.
“It’s difficult, you make a mistake in the [first] 30 seconds of the game and you make another mistake later. You have Chiefs against the ropes,” Johnson told SuperSport TV.
“I think I can call Chiefs a counter-attacking team because we had possession of the ball. But when you make bad mistakes you get punished. They made good use of [our] mistakes.
“But in saying that I thought we played better football tonight. We have to be proud of the players who played better football but as I always say, football is a game of moments.
“The moment we gave away the first goal we had our backs against the wall. But we were still able to come out there and maintain possession and we equalised.
“We thought we were in with a chance because I could see Chiefs players were fatigued. We kept possession but again on a counter-attack your player makes a mistake and they punish you.
“You cannot allow Bernard Parker with the quality he has to score a goal like that. Those are nice goals but I thought our goals were well worked. We deserved the goals. We deserved at least not to lose tonight. But when you make mistakes like we did for sure you gonna lose. We have to learn from this and move forward,” he said.
