Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson believes his side could have easily scored five goals in their 2-2 stalemate against Mpumalanga Black Aces.

According to KickOff, Johnson admits that he needs to fix things within his teams behaviour when it comes down to the dying minutes of the game.

"When you throw away two points and you have opportunities like we did in the first half... we should have been 5-0 up," said Johnson.

"We hit the crossbar and the post three times, you have to ask yourself, this is gonna bite us. And this is what I told the guys at half-time.

"Credit to them [Aces], they played well in patches, but I need to fix the last couple of minutes of games. Maybe when we do that better we will get the three points."

A brace of goals for Stars’ Ndumiso Mabena put Dikwena in the lead but AmaZayoni were not to be out done on the day as goals by Lebogang Manyama and Judas Moseamedi snatched a point for the home team.
