Usuthu head coach Cavin Johnson has commended his side’s character which saw them gain maximum points against Chippa United at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on 30 November night in the Absa Premiership.
‘’Today we got three points, we humbled ourselves, credit to the boys.’’
Johnson also applauded Usuthu for their resilience throughout the game even when they were under pressure in the second half.
‘’In the second half they gave us a run for our money but we’ll take the three points. Credit to the boys again, they did what we planned at training, we played a lot of good football,” said Johnson.
Deserved man of the match, Butholezwe Ncube not only got onto the scoreboard for Usuthu but did a sterling job in the middle of the park starting attacks and keeping the home team at bay.
The Zimbabwean international said: “I’m happy that we got the three points, we deserve it. It was a tough game with high intensity,” said Ncube.
Another man who celebrated a goal this week, Argentine forward Emiliano Tade echoed the words of his teammate as he beamed with joy at the impact the 6 points collected will have for the Durban outfit.
‘’I always say whoever scores, happy days. The energy and dynamics that we have in the team is great and going forward,” said Tade.
On 27 November the green and white donning Usuthu breached stubborn Highlands Park’s fotress, the Makhulong Stadium in a 2-1 Absa Premiership affair with Tade and veteran Siyabinga Nomvethe registering a goal a piece.
The result sees them move from the bottom of the log with 10 points.
AmaZulu’s next encounter is against Bloemfontein Celtic at the king Zwelithini stadium on 12 December.
Kickoff is at 19:30.
