Usuthu’s Johnson optimistic ahead of SuperSport clash


AmaZulu FC head coach Cavin Johnson is eager to mastermind a victory over SuperSport United on Saturday.

The two teams will lock horns in an Absa Premiership match at the King Zwelithini Stadium Stadium in Durban.

Usuthu are looking to secure their first league victory of the year and also end their seven-match winless run in the competition.

“We haven’t had results, but going to Saturday’s game for us it’s definitely a big try for us. The fact that we have not had a win in 2018,” said Johnson.

“With a win, you see yourself somewhere else, with two losses and you are somewhere where you don’t belong.

Johnson will face his former side SuperSport, who are coming off a 1-0 victory over Maritzburg United in a league encounter which was played in midweek.

AmaZulu announced the signing of Togo international Camaldine Abraw this week. The striker has had stints with Absa Premiership clubs Free State Stars and Kaizer Chiefs.

“That is the nature of the league this season, we need to do something as players and coaching staff to turn around our fortunes,” he added.

“We have prepared well for this particular game against SuperSport. We have a new player (Abraw) who will probably be in the team to try and get goals for us.

“We believe in the structure we have put together, I think we have turned the corner when it comes to displaying the brand of football we want which will be synonymous with AmaZulu going forward,” he continued.

“It’s just that goals are not coming, but we have to ensure we do that properly because we also don’t want to concede.

“This weekend is no exception and we will put our best forward and ensure we come out with something.”

Kick-off is at 20h15.
