Shakes out to cement MDC top finish

AmaZulu Reserves Coach Nhlanhla Zwane has purposed to turn the tables on tricky Supersport United when they meet this Sunday at Atteridgeville (10:00).

Matsatsantsa beat Usuthu 4-3 in the first round in what then mentor Ayanda Dlamini pinned down to letting their foot off the paddle in the crucial stages of the match at Princess Magogo Stadium.

Zwane said: “We want nothing less than maximum points. We know we are away from home, and that we’ve been doing well this season, as was in our last fixture on the road.”

“We know that it’s going to be a difficult game because they want to get into the top 8 position, since now they are not guaranteed it more than us.”

“We’re up for the challenge and we will be fighting for 3 points that they took last year,” said Zwane.

Adding to their 47 points won’t see them ascending any further up the log standings, but Shakes believes they have more than just revenge to play for.

“In the remaining 3 matches, our goal is to cement our 4th log position because we can no longer catch up with number 3, 2 and 1 mathematically,” he said.

The former Usuthu midfielder took over coach Ayanda Dlamini last month who has since joined the first team.

According to the KwaMashu born 38-year-old coach his charges ought to be commended for maintaining their discipline and hunger this season.

“The boys have been responding well in terms of the way forward since I’ve been part of the set up in the beginning of the season while assisting coach Ayanda.

“I still see the hunger in the players even though the matches are different. In the last match against Baroka for an instance we showed hunger but in the second half it seemed like the boys relaxed a bit. These are things we’ve been trying to change,” sad Zwane.
