AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson felt his men should have done better against his former employers Platinum Stars following their 3-0 trouncing of champions Bidvest Wits.
Usuthu shocked the Students last week before being held to a 1-1 draw by bottom-placed Dikwena at King Zwelithini Stadium over the weekend.
Rhulani Manzini ensured a point for Johnson's side as his 61st minute strike from the spot cancelled out fellow new signing Thabang Sesinyi's first-half opener in Durban.
Johnson told his club's website: “Firstly coming off from a win against Bidvest Wits I thought we should have done better, and knowing that this team is behind us we had to push a little bit harder.
“I thought in the first half we didn’t control the ball as well as we’d like to. We got into the first half 1-0 down, with an error.
“I think the goal was a nice goal but we should have pressed the ball better. Then we came out in the second half and I think we missed about four, five chances; really really good chances and we scored the one penalty, which I thought was fair.
“I thought we should have sealed the game in the second half because I thought we had more ball possession and we had the better quality of attacking moments in attack.
“If you look af the one that I think Sadate [Ouro-Akoriko] missed, the one Boysen Mbatha, the one that 'JB' [Jabulani Ncobeni] misses, the one that 'Jovies' [Vukile Mngqibisa] with his his head, the corner. Those are moments that when you connect probably and use the right technique they go inside and you win the game. But we’re happy that we didn’t lose the game.
“I have to give credit to the boys for fighting hard. We are building the team for the future let us not over run ourselves,” concluded the ex-SuperSport United tactician.
The Premiership returnees, in seventh place on the table with eight points from six games, next visit SuperSport on Saturday (20h15).
