AmaZulu Reserve Coach Ayanda Dlamini has praised his charges for a courageous performance against Mamelodi Sundowns in their Multichoice Diski Challenge which earned them a point at TUT stadium on Sunday afternoon.
“I believe the boys did very well considering we were playing away against a very good team, like Mamelodi Sundowns,” said Dlamini.
The Usuthu second side lie 5th on the log with 4 points with just 2 points separating them from current log leaders, Cape Town City and Free State Stars.
Dlamini has vowed to work steadying his side’s defending and ability to see off the match ahead of their upcoming fixtures.
“I think we need to improve on our defensive play especially in the second half. The boys decided to sit back.”
Bayanda Shangase positioned AmaZulu in the lead early in the half, but the 19-year-old striker was unlucky saw the home side levelling the score with a second half goal from Cassius Mailula.
“We want to improve on certain areas for us to be able to win the next match,” said Dlamini.
Gabonese goalkeeper, Jean Noel Amonome also produced a heroic penalty save to keep Usuthu in the clear.
Their next match will see AmaZulu Reserves will face Bidvest Wits at the Bidvest stadium on 23 September 2018. Kickoff is at 12 PM.Share
