Usuthu look to gain another positive result when they travel to take on Free State Stars at the Goble Park stadium on Saturday afternoon in the Absa Premiership.

AmaZulu head to Bethlehem after an impressive 2-0 win over Bidvest Wits at the King Zwelithini stadium and will be looking to maintain their resurgence in the league and work their way up the log standings.

Coming off the back of a loss against Supersport United, Free State stars will be hoping to steer themselves to safety and out of the relegation zone.

Usuthu defender Sedat Ouro-Akoriko reckons that the encounter will be a difficult one, but believes the team is ready to fight with everything they have.

‘’It will be a difficult game for us but we are not going there to sleep, we are going to fight for maximum points.’’

The 30- year old Togolese international says that the green and white outfit has the potential to reproduce the level of quality that they did against Bidvest Wits.

‘’I believe that in the last match we were able to implement the coaches instructions on the field to the best of our abilities and I believe that if we work hard enough during training, we can produce another quality performance.’’

‘’We will give the opposing team the respect that they deserve but we will also not become too comfortable that we lose our concentration on the field, ‘’he concluded.

Kick Off is at 15:30 CAT.
