Warning To Bucs, AmaZulu Aim For Third Successive Win

Orlando Pirates will have to be at the top of their game in order to win their next match, as their opponents AmaZulu have been in impressive form of late.

The Buccaneers are scheduled to host Usuthu at the Orlando Stadium in their Absa Premiership match on Saturday evening.

The KwaZulu-Natal outfit has recently experienced a rich vein of form, having won both their last two matches, against Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City respectively. 

Usuthu beat Sundowns 2-0 at Loftus Versveld Stadium at the end of January, while they grabbed a 1-0 home victory over City earlier this month.      

On the other hand, Pirates had their 15-game unbeaten run come to an end when they lost 1-0 to SuperSport United on Wednesday, with the Soweto giants having now played six matches without a win in all competitions.

Striker Bonginkosi Ntuli, who officially parted ways with Mamelodi Sundowns in January when he signed a permanent deal with AmaZulu, is hoping to score against Bucs to stay on track of his target of more than 10 goals for the season.   

“I’m very happy that I finally signed a contract with AmaZulu FC, I’m overjoyed. I can now focus on football, knowing that my future is secure here. I’ve worked with coach Cavin Johnson quite a few times before, I’ve learnt quite a lot from him in terms of how I should play and I’m positive that I’ll gain more knowledge as time goes on. My target is to score, maybe, more than ten goals this season. I understand my role in the team, if I am not scoring then I need to help set up goals. It is also important for me to defend from the front,” Ntuli told AmaZulu’s official website.
