AmaZulu defender Carlington Nyadombo says his side will have to dig deep during the second half of the season in order to consolidate their place in the top half of the Absa Premiership log.
Usuthu ended the first leg of the season with a defeat against Kaizer Chiefs but the Zimbabwe international says they have had enough time to recharge their batteries for the final stretch.
“The break was great; I went home and celebrated Christmas, which also happens to be my birthday, with my family,” he said.
“It’s always good to take some time off but we’re back at work now and we’re all focused on starting the year on a positive note.
“We also have new guys coming in to strengthen the team and increase the depth because before we had a small squad.
“We’re going to the last 15 games of the season, which is the most difficult part and we need each and everyone in the team to be at their best.
“Despite some setbacks we experienced last year, we’re still in a decent position and now we have to push even harder, starting from the very first game.”
Usuthu are currently in seventh place on the log with 20 points and will resume their campaign with a home game against Orlando Pirates at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on January 23.Share
