Johnson admits Polokwane City mystery


AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson is aware that a lot has changed in the Polokwane City team his side will face in Limpopo on Saturday.

Usuthu will be hosted at Old Peter Mokaba Stadium with one thing in mind, three points after a disappointing 3-0 opening-day defeat at home against Bidvest Wits last weekend.

Johnson says the team will have to bounce back and get maximum points but admits it won't be easy as they will be facing a team that made changes, including a new man in charge in Zlatko Krmpotic, who replaced Josef Vukuzic.

"We have to get these points somewhere, it's still early," he said.

"You're going to play against another team that uses a field that is not as big as our field, a different area and they've got a few new players and a new coach, you don't know their approach.

"We need to tell ourselves three points we lost against Wits is probably three points we can go and get there."

Rise and Shine will be in good spirits coming from a Limpopo derby victory over Black Leopards last Sunday. A win for the hosts would put more pressure on Johnson.
