Cape Town - Amazulu coach Cavin Johnson was a happy man after his side clinched a 2-1 victory over relegation-threatened Ajax Cape Town in the Absa Premiership tie on Tuesday.

Johnson said all that his side wanted on Tuesday evening was the three points to help them move away from the relegation zone.

Mhlengi Cele put Usuthu ahead in the 50th minute, but Ajax were able to find their way back into the game through a beautiful free kick by Rodrick Kabwe. However, an own goal from Siyanda Zwane sealed the win for the home side.

Johnson believes a lot of work still lies ahead for his team to finish the 2017/18 campaign in a respectable position.

The win over Ajax helped Usuthu leapfrog Chippa United into tenth position ahead of the weekend’s trip to Bloemfontein Celtic.

Johnson told Supersport: "I thought the first-half was a better performance than the second-half.

"We were a bit erratic in the second-half on the ball, but we could have been a bit calmer because we knew they were going to play on the encounter.

"They have done that well and did it more in the second half, but never got clear, clear chances.

"But it worried us because we set back and were not able to come out.

"Yes, the free kick they scored, brilliant free kick, but we came to get the points and how we got it does not matter. 2-1, we are happy to go to our homes with the three points."
