AmaZulu targeting away win at Wits


AmaZulu will look collect more points when they visit Bidvest Wits in their Absa Premiership encounter at the Bidvest Stadium on Saturday, 11 May 2013 at 15h00.


Usuthu are fresh from an emphatic 4-0 win over Black Leopards, their biggest victory of the season so far, and will look to take some momentum into the penultimate game of the season.


Although the result took Craig Rosslee’s men out of the relegation battle, the Cape-born coach is determined to see his side finishing the season strongly and starting the new campaign with no shortage of confidence.


This will also be an opportunity for Usuthu to change their fortunes on the road as they have only won two and lost seven of their 14 away matches this season.


AmaZulu are placed 12th on the Absa Premiership log with 32 points from 28 matches.


Wits on the other hand recorded a second win from their last three matches with a 2-1 triumph away to University of Pretoria last midweek.


The Johannesburg side has recorded five wins, five draws and four defeats from their 14 home matches this season.


The Clever Boys are placed fourth on the Absa Premiership log with 40 points from 28 matches.


In head-to-head stats, Wits and AmaZulu have met in 48 league matches since 1985.


The Clever Boys have claimed 17 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 19 matches have been drawn.


Wits have a good home record against the Durban side, with 12 wins and just five defeats from 24 matches.


When the teams met earlier this season they played to a 1-1 draw in Durban, with Nyadombo and Jayiya scoring the goals.
