Morton sounds battle cry

AmaZulu central midfielder, Michael Morton is confident the team will turnaround their fortunes before the mid-season break.

Usuthu have five Absa Premiership games to go before the competition takes a break for the festive season.

Cavin Johnson’s side are bottom of the log but have enjoyed a string of encouraging performances in the Telkom Knockout and the League.

Morton was the Man of Match last weekend as AmaZulu played to a goalless draw against high flying, Polokwane City at the King Zwelithini Stadium

“To come back and play ninety minutes, to get through it physically was nice. Personally I was pretty happy with the performance but I would have liked three points to cap it off,” Morton told AmaZulu

The club now has two weeks to prepare for their next encounter, a clash against Highlands Park at the Makhulong Stadium

“We need a bit of a mental break, not to think too much about the next game yet,” Morton explained

“We need to use this first week to get the guys refreshed. Start preparing next week for Highlands Park, just so we do not overload ourselves.”

The 29-year-old is a seasoned pro, having made his flight football debut top ten years ago.

As a senior player, Morton understands his role in motivating younger members of the squad.

“We have been around the block. We know the highs are never as good as you think and the lows are never as bad as you think. We need to be level headed,” Morton said.

“It’s about motivating youngsters, football has ups and downs and you just have to be consistent in your mindset,” he concluded.

AmaZulu’s next encounter is against Highlands Park FC on the 27 November at the Makhulong Stadium.

Kick Off is at 19:30
