AmaZulu FC’s intentions are to make Moses Mabhida Stadium a fortress in the 2022-23 season.

This is according to the club’s head coach Brandon Truter who has guided the team to back-to-back wins in the DStv Premiership at the iconic stadium.

Usuthu claimed come-from-behind victories over SuperSport United and Cape Town City last week as the KwaZulu-Natal giants maintained their unbeaten start to the current campaign.

“The Moses Mabhida Stadium is our home, we want to make it a fortress,” Truter said.

“No team should not come here and get points, whether you are leading or whatever. That is what we want to create, the mentality is right.”

AmaZulu’s next game will be away to Swallows FC at the 2010 FIFA World Cup training venue, Dobsonville Stadium on Friday in another league encounter.

“But the next game is away and I don’t think we had a great game away against TS Galaxy [in our last away match], but we managed to get a draw,” he continued.

“The next thing Galaxy goes on to beat Mamelodi Sundowns. So, every point in this league counts. Our aim is to collect three points [against Swallows].”

A victory for third-placed Usuthu over Amaswaiswai will take Truter’s side to the top of the league standings.
