He took over from Allan Freese at the end of March to return to Dikwena after a two-year absence, and hit the ground running as a brace from Robert Ng'ambi helped see off the Urban Warriors at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium this weekend.

Speaking after the match, which left Stars five points clear of the relegation zone with seven games remaining this season, Johnson told KickOff: "We played really well and it was the perfect start for me, I cannot ask for more.

“It was not easy and we had to fight all the way.

“We created many chances and I feel that the scoreline is not really a fair reflection of the game because we could have won by a much wider margin.

“Overall, I am happy because the guys listened to the instructions at half time.

“Ng'ambi knows my philosophy and I am happy that he really played well in the middle of the park.

“His two goals made the difference in the end.”
