Defender Tamsanqa Teyise has promised AmaZulu’s away mission to Jomo Cosmos at Sinaba Stadium in a week’s time will re-launch the 79 year old club’s season following a positive team performance on Friday.
Although the two legged match that was played at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Friday morning with neighbours Golden Arrows proved to be a 0-0 and 1-1 stalemate, the 25 year old believes the match strengthened the squad’s hopes.
“I was satisfied with the way we played, even though we didn’t win, we know if we push the way we’re doing we will soon be talking a different story.
It was a serious match, Arrows pushed us hard as well,” said Teyise.
In the second game AmaZulu’s only goal came from a defensive error when right-back Alistair Wallis’s cross into Arrow’s box was deflected into the net by an Arrows defender.
The match saw an exchange of threats to each other’s goal, but both team’s keepers and the defense proved up to the task.
Njabulo Manqana later equalized for the home team.
The Alexandra born defender did not feature in the second leg match as part of the coach’s plans to give each player ample game time as the league programme is in idle mode.
“When we come back for Jomo Cosmos we know we have to win for our fans. We will be away so we have to be solid and try and come back with the three points by force,” said the defender.
Head coach Manqoba Mngqithi told AmaZulufc.net, he will use the following week to sharpen up a few more aspects in his side as he will be expecting the likes of Tapuwa Kapini, Tangeni Shipahu and Moses Chavula back into the team from international duty.Share
