AmaZulu coach Steve Barker has described their 2-0 victory over Polokwane City as a massive boost for him and the players, despite some missed opportunities on Wednesday at Princess Magogo Stadium.
Barker said it been a long time coming, but he feels that they did not play their best football on the day. However, he will welcome the points with both hands.
“I am happy with the results, can’t really say so with the performance because I feel we should have won the match earlier. We made it difficult, but I am glad that we managed to make a good comeback,” said Barker.
The result has taken Usuthu to the 14th spot for the first time this season and despite all this, the coach said they need to fight harder and continue working hard.
“The good thing is that we have managed to get ourselves in the mix. There is still a lot of work that needs to be done because the season is not yet over. I must give credit to my players from their persistence and dedication since I arrived.
“At some stage we were on ten points, so this has really been a huge boost for the players mentally,” he said.
The coach also gave credit to goalkeeper Energy Murambadoro for the excellent saves he pulled off during their massive victory.
“Energy played well and it’s good to have a quality goalkeeper like him. I think from the time he arrived at the club he has been exceptional. Getting clean sheets is a bonus and he did that well against Free State Stars and tonight as well.
“He has been an impressive signing and we hope to continue on that note,” he said.Share
