Modisakeng hopeful of a top 5 finish

AmaZulu reserves team captain, Boiki Modisakeng says they want to push for a top five finish in the Multi-Choice Diski Challenge.

Usuthu reserves have been in tremendous form of late, having won their last two encounters, against Maritzburg United and Bloemfontein Celtic, without conceding a goal.

Modisakeng says they’re in high spirits and will look to continue their unbeaten run.

“There is a good feeling among our players, we ended 2019 with a derby win against Maritzburg and we were able to start the new year with a tough win against Celtic,” he said.

“We know we are a capable bunch and our ambition for this season is to break into the top five teams in the league.”

Usuthu now sit in ninth on the log, six points off fifth placed Cape Town City FC, with 11 games left to play in the season.

Although much praise can be given to the team for their efforts this season, Modisakeng insists that without head coach, Ayanda Dlamini, none of this would be possible.

“When you have someone like him training you and mentoring you, it is a great deal. Our mentality has changed under him because we feel like we can beat anyone. He knows us better than we know ourselves and he is able to get the best out of us,” said Modisakeng.

AmaZulu reserves will next host Black Leopards at the Chatsworth Stadium on Sunday. Kickoff is at 12pm.
