AmaZulu striker Sifiso Vilakazi says he is happy with his progress, but also believes there is a lot of room for improvement before he reaches his top level.
The 33-year old has started the last two games for Roger Palmgren’s side and although he is still searching for his first goal of the season he believes he is getting closer to opening his account, since joining the club at the start of the season.
“I’m not where I need to be at the moment but I’ve been working hard and I think I will get there if I keep playing regularly,” said Vilakazi.
“I appreciate that the coach has had confidence to give me more game time in the past two games, and I’ll do my best to help the team.”
Usuthu are looking to bounce back following their 1-0 loss to Bloemfontein Celtic, but Vilakazi believes they will do better in their next game against Mamelodi Sundowns, who they recently lost to in the quarterfinals of the Telkom Knockout.
“I was happy with the performance of the team against Celtic, we showed a lot of hunger and we created chances,” he said.
“It was just unfortunate that we were unable to score and they got a goal in the last minute.
“The game against Sundowns is not going to be easy. They may be in a bad position on the log, but we have to give them respect because they are a big team and they have good players.
“We’ve been working hard at training and I’m sure the coaches will come up with a game-plan to ensure that we are on the winning side again, but I’m sure we won’t repeat the same mistakes we made in a cup game.”
The two sides will meet at Loftus Stadium on Wednesday night at 19h30.
