AmaZulu forward Ayanda Dlamini believes the squad has what it takes to bounce back from the two recent Absa Premiership defeats.
Usuthu went down 7-1 to Mamelodi Sundowns last week and 2-0 to Maritzburg United on the weekend, but Dlamini remains confident in the team’s ability.
“It has been tough for us in the past week. But, we are responding well at training this week,” says Dlamini, who has made seven appearances this season in the League and is yet to score his first goal.
“The older players have spent a lot of time talking with the newer players and playing our part because the season is still early. We are still in position 7 on the table and we can bounce back.
“I believe we have players at the club with the character to fight back and learn from the mistakes. We have had a good meeting time with the coach and his technical team and we have discussed how we need to fight back.
“At training we have been focusing on areas like our defending as well as creating scoring chances because we have not been creating enough lately.”
AmaZulu next face Polokwane City in a League match on November 6. Four days later Usuthu will host Bloemfontein Celtic.
