The international break has given the AmaZulu technical team an extended period of time to prepare for a busy schedule before the mid-season break.
Usuthu play Highlands Park and Chippa United in the space of three days next week with the club eager to register points to get off the foot of the table.
“The break gave us a chance to assess players bumps and bruises, everyone is looking good and ready to go,” assistant coach, Alan Clark said.
“We also had to make sure that we got some game time through friendlies, makes sure that the guys who are not playing regularly get some action,” Clark added.
The Lions of the North have made an impressive return to top flight football. They currently occupy tenth spot in the log and have lost just twice this season.
“They are a difficult team to play against, their system and effort they put into the game must be commended. They make it difficult for teams especially when they play at home,” Clark explained.
Clark emphasized the importance of the team getting their first away points off the season against Owen Da Gama’s side.
“It is a tough game for all the teams in the PSL but it is also a fixture that we need to get as many points as we can from,” Clark said.
“We have worked on some tactical elements, tweaked a few thing. We are always working on imporving ourselves, “ Clark concluded.
AmaZulu will travel to face Highlands Park on 27 November at 19:30 at Makhulong Stadium. On 30 November the KZN outfit faces Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay at 20:00.Share
