Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson believes his team took their foot off the pedal in the second half of their 1-1 draw with Kaizer Chiefs on Wednesday.

Dikwena opened the scoring through a dubious Robert N'gambi goal in the 20th minute which appeared not to have crossed the line before Hendrick Ekstein equalised for Chiefs in the 72nd minute.

Johnson had wanted his players to wrap up the game with a second goal as Amakhosi were under pressure.

"It was a game of two halves I think. I think the first half we scored two goals. I believe the one is not a goal but I believe the other is a goal so sometimes this game is about luck and that was the luck we got but I thought we played better in the first-half," he told SuperSport.

"I think we were far too high up to not concede a goal and when you look at the goal they scored there are four or five of my players on the floor and the ball still goes in the back of the net and you wonder who was watching the ball.

"We came here to play football. We played football in the first half, we defended in the second-half."
