Amazulu knows exactly what their National First Division game against Black Leopards means to them and the fans.
Usuthu will be playing at home at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday with kick-off set for 3:30pm.
The home side will have some unpleasing memories as their last fixture ended on sad a note as they shared the points with Mthatha Bucks through a goal that was scored in the drying minutes of the match.
The club is currently sitting on position seven with two defeats in seven matches since the start of the National First Division.
Coach Steve Barker said a player like Alan Mukuka might shine on the day as he has been looking sharp.
“He (Mukuka) had a good start on our previous match, but the conditions didn’t allow him to play his usual style of football. I am pretty sure he will perform and contribute positively in the team, “said Barker.
On the other hand, the visitors, Black Leopards are sitting in the fifth spot and if Usuthu wins they will be ahead of them.
“A win is important because it will see us climbing the ladder ahead of Leopards. What is good is that we have a chance to do that ourselves. The best way is to play our football and focus on our strengths,” said Barker.
Another player who has been in fine form this season and contesting for the golden boot is Bornwell Mwaoe who now has three goals under his belt.
In the mean time Linda Bhengu and captain Robyn Johanness have not been given the green light and the coach has insisted that he will not rush their injuries.Share
