“To predict before the time comes can be the worst thing that a coach can do. I am just focusing on ways in which I can motivate the players to play at their best,” Johnson said.

“We have pressure all the time so I will be able to handle it. We deal with these sorts of things all the time and the important thing is not to panic.”

The former Bloemfontein Celtic coach reveals that SuperSport will have to focus on improving the way they attack in order for them to get back to winning ways.

“We just have to work on our attacking style and make sure we play to our strengths. If we manage to do this, then we will be able to win matches.”

Matsatsansta take on Wits at Lucas Moripe Stadium with the game scheduled to start at 20:15.
