AmaZulu defender Thamsanqa Teyise says it’s up to the players to get the club out of the rough patch and back to winning ways.
Usuthu have lost three matches this season, going down 2-0 against Moroka Swallows inthe quarterfinal of the MTN8 before losing 6-0 to Kaizer Chiefs and then 2-0 to Maritzburg United in Absa Premiership.
Although it’s still early days as far as the league is concerned, Teyise says they are not resting on their laurels as they are determined to end the losing streak.
“We (the players) have to turn things around, we ended the season well and finished in 7th place last season and we wanted to continue from there,” said Teyise.
“So far things have not gone according to plan; we have lost three games and conceded too many goals, which is something we are not used to and something we find unacceptable as players.
“I’m sure the fans are not pleased as well but we are working very hard to get back on track before it’s too late, we don’t want to be at the bottom of the log. We want our fans to be happy again.”
Usuthu will have a chance to bounce back in style when they host local rivals Lamontville Golden Arrows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, September 1, and Teyise has made a plea to the supporters to come out in numbers.
“I know that we are in a difficult situation at the moment but I’m appealing to our supporters not to lose faith and to keep supporting us,” he said.
“I can assure them that we are working very hard and we need their support when we play against Golden Arrows and until the very last game of the season.”
