AmaZulu FC reserve team coach Reneilwe Letsholonyane said he was encouraged by his side’s performance in Saturday’s clash against Golden Arrows.
Siphephelo Majola’s first-half goal gave Usuthu the lead, but Abafana Bes’thende equalised after the restart which saw the DStv Diski Challenge match end in a 1-1 draw.
“It was a game that had a lot of positives and good moments. We started very very well,” Letsholonyane said when reflecting on the 2023/24 season opener.
“We were better than the opposition [team]. What I can say it is decision-making.
“Especially in the second-half from our team, individually and as a group obviously led to us conceding the equalizing goal.”
The retired midfielder made it clear that Usuthu intend to win all of their matches following the game which was played at the Princess Magogo Stadium.
“We played at home and as AmaZulu we believe that every game we need to go into it trying to get the maximum points,” he explained.
“Yes, we conceded a goal but there was not that much challenge that Golden Arrows gave us at the back.
“So, we did not have a reason to fix much at the back. We needed to get a goal so that we could win our home game, but it did not work out.”
AmaZulu will now take on Kaizer Chiefs on 17 September at the Chatsworth Stadium.
