Usuthu look to bonce back with Galaxy win

AmaZulu players warming up

AmaZulu FC will go head to head with TS Galaxy in Wednesday’s DStv Premiership encounter at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Kick-off is at 7:30 pm CAT.
Usuthu suffered a 3-0 defeat to Kaizer Chiefs in their most recent game which was played in Johannesburg over the weekend.
The KwaZulu-Natal giants are placed 14th on the league standings having accumulated three points from their first four matches this term.
 AmaZulu head coach Pablo Franco Martin indicated that his side is improving following the encounter against Chiefs.
“I think we are improving. Today, I think we did worse in defence, especially in the first five minutes of the first half,” Pablo Martin said.
“Then, I think we controlled them pretty well. And for me, the second goal we conceded is not something you can tell your players to improve.
“I think the situation is to defend well, and of course, there are details that you can improve. We will work on that. “This is not a terrible situation when defending, it’s more about the quality of the opponents they have. From here, we are going to be improving.”
Meanwhile, Galaxy suffered a 1-0 defeat to Royal AM in their most recent game which was played in Pietermaritzburg over the weekend.
Therefore, the Rockets are placed third on the league standings having accumulated seven points from their first four matches this term.
AmaZulu and Galaxy have no suspension concerns coming into this game with Usuthu right-back Thembela Sikhakhane available for selection.
