Usuthu eye second successive win

AmaZulu players warming up

AmaZulu FC will be looking to record their second successive win in the DStv Premiership when they host Cape Town City at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 8:00 pm CAT.

Usuthu are in a buoyant mood after claiming their first win of the season when they overcame SuperSport United 2-1 at home on Wednesday in their second game of the season.

The KwaZulu-Natal giants, who scored through Frank Mhango and Bonginkosi Ntuli against SuperSport, are currently placed third on the league standings having accumulated four points from their first two matches this term.

Coach Brandon Truter will be determined to guide AmaZulu to their second consecutive victory in the league and also maintain the team’s unbeaten record in the current campaign.

Meanwhile, City are wounded once again following a 3-2 defeat to Swallows FC away on Wednesday after starting the new campaign with a 2-0 loss to Mamelodi Sundowns last week Friday.

The Citizens find themselves placed 15th on the DStv Premiership standings without a single point and it has created a little bit of early pressure on the club’s head coach Eric Tinkler.

Coach Eric Tinkler will be hoping to ensure that the Citizens avoid their third successive defeat in the league when they travel to Durban having failed to defeat Usuthu last term.

Last season, AmaZulu collected four points from City as they won 2-0 in Durban, before the two teams drew 0-0 in the second clash in Pretoria.
