Usuthu will be looking to build on the past Tuesday’s gutsy performance against Kaizer Chiefs despite succumbing to a 2-0 loss as they turn their attention on SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe stadium on Saturday night.
The Absa Premiership clash against Matsatsantsa is billed for 20:15 kickoff.
Usuthu’s 30-year-old Zimbabwean international attacker, Ovidy Karuru is confident of a positive outcome to build from their last league encounter.
“Considering the fact that it was the first game for coach Vukusic, I think we were quite decent in terms of playing according to what the coach wanted.”
“It’s unfortunate that luck was just not our side that day, but he just wants everyone to continue working hard as we all have been in training,” added Karuru.
Last season Usuthu defeated the Pretoria outfit 2-0 at the King Zwelithini stadium while an own goal gave Supersport a win in the first round in Lucas Moripe Stadium.
Supersport come into the match on a high after knocking out their bitter rivals Mamelodi Sundowns on penalties to advance to the MTN8 final.
While their assignment this weekend will be tricky, the Masvingo born man has faith in his teammates to unlock their fortunes for the next tougher fixtures.
“The next two games won’t be easy; we just must work hard and keep the fighting spirit alive.
With regards to the game against SuperSport, I think we just need to pick up where we left off in the game against Kaizer Chiefs, in terms of playing the kind of football we are comfortable with, we will have a chance to get a positive result against them.”
“It’s never too early or too late to pick up points in my opinion, a win against SuperSport will be a huge confidence boost to the team and I’m sure going forward we will sustain the momentum,” he concluded.Share
