Nhlanhla Vilakazi rallies Usuthu for Positive 2018/2019 ABSA Premiership finish


AmaZulu look to end off their 2018/19 Absa Premiership campaign on a positive note as they take on an unpredictable Bloemfontien Celtic at the Sisa Dukashe stadium in East London on 09 May.

After 29 games, Usuthu have 31 points and occupy the eleventh position on the log.

Despite the KZN outfit having endured a number of challenges this season, AmaZulu FC captain Nhlanhla Vilakazi believes that the team can still give the Usuthu faithful something to smile about come Saturday.

“Our supporters have been our 12th man throughout the season and we are extremely grateful for that. We would like to end off the season on a positive note.”

“I would like to also give credit to my teammates as well on the way we tackled the challenges we faced and although we weren’t consistent enough with obtaining positive results through out.”

“We promise to work hard during pre-season and return better than before,” Vilakazi added.

AmaZulu came from behind in their last match against Black Leopards at home to rescue a point in a 1-1 scoreline.

The experienced midfielder warns against any form of complacency ahead of the embattled Bloem Celtic. Siwelele have been plagued by numerous off the field issues which have finally led to their home matches being sent outside of the Free State by order a PSL DC outcome.

The 32 year old Benoni man however is adamant their opponents will be looking to restore the faith in their supporters as well.

“Bloemfontein Celtic themselves have had quite a challenging season and they’ll also be looking to give their supporters something to be happy about so I foresee this match as being quite a tight one.”

“This season for me as a captain has been a rather good one regardless, I obtained many lessons about leading the team through good and challenging times, it’s been an overall good experience ,” he concluded.

AmaZulu beat Celtic 3-0 in the first round.

The match is on 09 May, Saturday at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium. Kickoff 15:00.
