Kaizer Chiefs coach Cavin Johnson has congratulated Orlando Pirates stating that they “have the bragging rights now” following their victory in the Soweto derby.

Amakhosi failed to secure back-to-back victories in the DStv Premiership following their 1-0 defeat to Pirates at the FNB Stadium on Saturday.

The defeat saw Amakhosi drop down to ninth place with 14 points from 12 matches, while Pirates up to seventh place in the DStv Premiership standing with 15 points after 10 matches.

Johnson was pleased with his side’s performance but bemoans their missed chances against the Buccaneers.

“A game maybe of two halves, I thought we had the better chances in the first half,” Johnson told SuperSport TV after the game.

“I thought we had a nice chance in the beginning but then they picked up and scored their first chance in the first half.

“We were ok in the second half, we should’ve scored late in the half but not to be. Congratulations to Pirates, they have the bragging rights now.

“But we will come back, the way we want to play and the way some of the players played today, I think we can only get better but we need to be a lot more calmer in a lot of moments in the game.”
