Usuthu Reserves aiming to break into the top half of the MDC table


AmaZulu Reserves’ team head coach, Ayanda Dlamini, believes his team are well positioned to continue their push into the top half of the MultiChoice Diski Challenge.

They travel to Limpopo this weekend to take on Polokwane City on Saturday morning.

Dlamini says his side now have a winning mentality and are hungry to continue their successful run.

“We are expecting a tough game but I think these boys have proven that they can now beat anyone, our confidence is high, and we are sure we will get another good result,” he said.

Usuthu have kept back to back clean sheets, whilst scoring a total of five goals in their last two games against Baroka FC and Maritzburg United.

Dlamini says he is impressed with the defensive turn around his team have shown over the past few weeks.

“I’m happy that we are scoring goals but I’m even happier that we are keeping those clean sheets,” he said. “At the start of the season we gave away and conceded too many goals to our opponents, and had to try out score them to win but now that we have worked on that, it is hard for teams to score against us, so it makes our job in attack a bit easier.”

Meanwhile, Reserve team captain Boiki Modisakeng says there is a positive feeling amongst the players. He says that they are now confident in their ability to impress on the pitch and will do their best to claim all three points at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium.

“We have put together some good performances recently and that has given us a good boost going into a run of some challenging games. Anything can happen in football but we know that we can do well if we play to our potential,” he said.

Usuthu climbed up to ninth in the table, following their last win and currently sit five points clear of Polokwane City, who are in twelfth

Both teams will battle it out at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium at 10am on the 2nd of November 2019.
