Cape Town – Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson admits that he knew Jomo Cosmos would be a tough side to beat.

According to KickOff, Johnson believes that his side could easily have capitalised on Cosmos going down to 10-men but instead Sono’s charges pushed Dikwena to get back into the game.

“It looked like we played a game of four halves,” he said after the game.

“I thought in the first half we had control of the game; I thought we could have scored another goal in the first half because if we are two up against Jomo Cosmos it’s always difficult. They’re a good team with good players and a good attitude. 

“When you go 2-0 up in the first half and you tell your players, you are going to play 45 minutes with 10 men against Jomo Cosmos, it’s going to be difficult. I respect Jomo, he didn’t get anything out of the game, but in the second half they missed a lot of chances.

The match ended 2-1 with Robert Ng'ambi and Eleazar Rodgers getting on the scoresheet for Stars while Cheslyn Jampies scored a consolation goal for Cosmos.
