SuperSport started strongly, beating the likes of Free State Stars and Kaizer Chiefs, but they find themselves 10 points behind AmaKhosi

In an exclusive interview with Goal, SuperSport United coach Cavin Johnson feels that his team should have done better during the past four months that he has been in charge.

Matsatsantsa twice failed to progress beyond the semi-finals of two Cup competitions - MTN 8 and Telkom Knockout - and Johnson said that it hasn't been a good 2013 for him and his team.

"I am not happy with how things have been in the past four months," Johnson told Goal. "I think we should have been to one Cup final. If you look at how we played against Pirates, we conceded in the dying minutes of the two Cup games which shouldn't have happened," he said.

Johnson, who joined Matsatsantsa from Platinum Stars at the beginning of the season, believes his team's lack of consistency in the league is caused by the poor structuring of the PSL fixtures.

However, he is hoping to start on a clean slate as we approach the second half of the 2013/2014 season.

"There are several factors that contributed to our downfall in the league. The league wasn't structured accordingly, because you win one game and play after two or three weeks and that kills the momentum of the team," said Johnson.

He added: "If that could be different in 2014 then I believe that we will have a better second half of the season."
