Cavin Johnson addresses concerning ‘position’ at Chiefs

Kaizer Chiefs interim Cavin Johnson coach has addressed the concerning position at the club and insisted that they will get it right soon.

Chiefs suffered back-to-back defeats after losing 2-0 against Chippa United at Buffalo City Stadium in the DStv Premiership on Saturday. Amakhosi conceded two goals in the first half of the match as Chippa collected maximum points.

Before losing against the Chilli Boys, Chiefs lost their midweek fixture 1-0 against Stellenbosch FC at FNB Stadium in the league. The Glamour Boys last tasted a victory when they beat the KZN-based side Golden Arrows 1-0 on the 5th of March.

Since the beginning of 2024, Chiefs only managed to win one game in eight matches across all competitions. The unimpressive run of form also saw the Soweto giants being eliminated from the 2024 Nedbank Cup last 32 by Motsepe Foundation Championship side Milford FC.


With Chiefs conceding six goals in their last four games, Johnson has admitted that failing to keep clean sheets is a worrying factor. However, he insists they will fix it very soon.

“It’s very difficult to reflect on that [the form]. Like you said, it’s the first time losing back-to-back games. We need to look at how we lost and how we conceded,” Johnson said.

“We need to understand also where we coming from and what lies ahead for us. We have to take ourselves out of this position so that we can give our supporters a fresh breath of air.

“And not much is different [in our defence], maybe we can say the pitch conditions were not good but the conditions were the same for Chippa. But I can’t put fingers on anyone because we did have clean sheets before and we’ll get it right.”

In the current campaign, Chiefs won eight games in the league, drawing six while losing nine times after 23 outings. They are sitting eighth on the log standings with 30 points.
