AmaZulu FC head coach Brandon Truter praised his charges following his side’s win over Swallows FC on Friday evening.

Usuthu claimed a come-from-behind 3-2 victory over Amaswaiswai in a DStv Premiership match at the 2010 FIFA World Cup training venue, Dobsonville Stadium in Soweto.

Frank Mhango, Thakasani Mbanjwa (own-goal) and Mbongeni Gumede netted for AmaZulu who are placed at the top of the league standings with 10 points after four matches played.

“It’s always nice coming home and getting [three points]. It’s my second home, so I’m never going to leave here without the three points, even last season,” Truter said.

“I can’t say thank you enough to the players for the shift they put in, of course.

“They were all tremendous, everybody fought back, but at the end of the day it’s about the result and the three points – that’s what we get paid to do, the coaches and players,” he added.

“It wasn’t easy out there at all, at times our emotions got the better of us, we needed to stay calm and one or two decisions also maybe provoked us a bit

“But, from my side and the overall outlook of the game, we need to go back and look at the goals we conceded.”

AmaZulu will now take on Lamontville Golden Arrows in the KwaZulu-Natal Derby match at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday.
