AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson says they will treat their last six Absa Premiership matches as finals.

Usuthu held Kaizer Chiefs to a goalless stalemate in an encounter which was played at the FNB Stadium on Saturday evening.

The draw left Johnson’s side placed 11th on the league standings with 28 points from 24 games.

The KwaZulu-Natal giants are four points above the relegation play-off spot with six games left.

“It’s deep at the other (bottom) end of the log, but we keep on pushing,” Johnson said.

“We’re in a funny league; I haven’t been in a league of this nature before.

“One game you win and you could end up in eighth place, or possibly even in seventh,” the 59-year-old continued.

“And if you lose you’re right back down at the bottom again.

“But we’re going to push as hard as we can to make sure that every game we play from now on is a cup final,” he added.

“I think everyone else is in the same boat – the top is just as tight as the bottom.”

Usuthu’s next league game is against Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday, 3 April 2018.

The game will be played at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban. Kick-off is at 19h30.
