As the team grapples with a goalless draw. Johnson’s insights into their performance and unique training approach offer a glimpse into their quest for improvement. And success in the upcoming fixtures.

MISSED OPPORTUNITIES DESPITE DOMINANCE

Interim coach Cavin Johnson delved into Kaizer Chiefs tactical blunders in the recent match. Shedding light on missed opportunities despite the game ending in a goalless draw. Johnson expressed his disappointment with the outcome. 

Stressing the importance of converting chances when they arise. Despite dominating possession for only 45% of the game.

In his post-match analysis, Johnson pinpointed areas where Chiefs faltered, particularly in executing their strategies effectively.

“Our approach lacked composure in the final phase,” Johnson said. Emphasising the need for precision in executing their game plan.

He also highlighted concerns about relying too heavily on aerial crosses. Which played into the strengths of the Cape Town City goalkeeper.

“Crossing the ball in the air was akin to giving away possession,” Johnson lamented. Urging his team to adopt more varied attacking tactics.

UNIQUE TRAINING APPROACH FOR SWIFT RECOVERY

Despite the frustration surrounding the draw, Chiefs remain seventh in the DStv Premiership standings. Their next opportunity to climb the table comes when they face Stellenbosch at FNB Stadium.

In preparation for the upcoming fixture. Johnson implemented a unique training regimen to optimise recovery and readiness.

“We conducted a regeneration session at an unconventional hour to allow the players ample rest,” Johnson revealed via FARPost.

Underscoring the importance of recuperation ahead of the demanding schedule.
