The Usuthu mentor has expressed his disappointment at his side’s inability to convert opportunities in critical areas of the game which saw going down 2-0 to Chippa United at home on 09 November 2019 in KwaMashu.
The result brought AmaZulu down to 15th position on the Absa Premiership log standings with 11 points just above Chippa United whose win saw them registered their first win of the season.
Vukusic said: “We had a lot of opportunities to score towards the end particularly from the box. The way we played in the last fifteen minutes of the game is the way we should have started the game.”
“We committed a lot of mistakes and they cost us dearly, but this is football. It was very important that we collected maximum points from the three games but unfortunately that was not to be,” he added.
The former Polokwane City mentor says that his charges need to dig deeper towards maintaining more consistent performances to steer away from their current league standing.
“We must pledge ourselves to have better consistency in our performances, it’s not only about results but it’s about performing as well. We must give more than 100% effort, in order, for us to be able to get out of the situation we are in now because we are not there yet. ”
“After the international break, we must come back and continue working hard because opponents won’t be easy to defeat.”
“We have about four games before the Christmas break so we must take each match as it comes,” he concluded.
AmaZulu will return to Absa Premiership league action at the Lucas Moripe stadium on 26 November against Mamelodi Sundowns.
Kickoff is @ 19:30.Share
