Usuthu eye another win over CT City

AmaZulu FC will travel to the Cape Town Stadium where they are scheduled to face Cape Town City FC in an Absa Premiership encounter on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20h15.

Usuthu extended their winless run to five matches in the league when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Orlando Pirates on October 6.

The KwaZulu-Natal giants’ last victory was against Free State Stars in mid-September.

Usuthu are winless on the road in the league this season having lost to SuperSport United, Bidvest Wits and Kaizer Chiefs.

Argentine striker Emiliano Tade, who scored against Pirates and Cape Town City in the Telkom Knockout Cup clash on Tuesday, will look to inspire Cavin Johnson’s side to victory this weekend.

Meanwhile, City’s winless run in the league is up to seven matches after they were held 0-0 at Maritzburg United on October 5.

The Cape side has not claimed a three-pointer since the first weekend of the season.

The Citizens have picked up four points from as many matches as hosts, with their last result at home a 2-0 loss at the hands of Bidvest Wits early this month.

Benedict ‘Benni’ McCarthy, the City head coach, will look to experienced creative midfielder Ayanda Patosi.

In head-to-head stats, City and AmaZulu have met in just two top-flight league matches.

Both encounters took place last season, with the Cape side winning 1-0 at home in the first half of the campaign, while Usuthu responded with a win by the same margin on the final day of 2017/18.

AmaZulu overcame City 2-0 in the Telkom Knockout Cup round of 16 match at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Tuesday.
