The AmaZulu FC Reserves are ready to return to competitive action this weekend after a six week mid-season break in the Multichoice-Diski League.
Ayanda Dlamini’s side host Bloemfontein Celtic at the King Zwelithini Stadium this Sunday at 10am.
Usuthu’s Diski Boys currently occupy fifth place on the log with five wins from ten games.
Their opponents this weekend are second, level on points with leaders, Cape Town City.
“Our preparations have gone well. The boys had a long break but they each had individual programmes to make sure they don’t lose their fitness over the holidays, Dlamini said.
“They are ready physically, all that is left is for us to do is ensure that we are mentally ready to return,’ Dlamini added.
The team spent the last four weeks at the end of last year on the road and Dlamini says he is delighted to start 2019 at home.
“It is always a challenge when you are travelling all the time. We have done well at home and we are ready to compete,”Dlamini said.
The high flying Celtic have lost just twice all season, Dlamini sees the fixture as an opportunity for his boys to push their way back into the title mix.
“They are a good team who are chasing the league title. We lost our last outing against Polokwane City and the boys understand this is a big chance for them to return to winning ways,” Dlamini concluded.Share
