AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson has revealed his approach for the Orlando Pirates match as they search for their first win of the season.
Following a disappointing start to the 2019/20 season, after losing both their matches against Bidvest Wits and Polokwane City respectively, Usuthu will be up against the Buccaneers in their next match at King Zwelithini Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Johnson has promised a fight for his team against the Soweto giants, who have put Rhulani Mokwena in charge of the team, following Milutin Sredojevic’s resignation from his head coaching position on Friday.
“There is never a right time to play anyone. Everyone prepares to win. We have to fight. We expect to play a fighting team, a running team and one that is very technical,” said Johnson, as quoted on AmaZulu’s official website.
“We have not started on a good note, we have played good football but we have not got the results. The players have done really well; we know it’s going to be a tough game tomorrow but it is our home game and we have to be confident,” the coach added.
Usuthu have confirmed that former Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro, who re-joined the KwaZulu-Natal outfit during the off-season, is doubtful for the match owing to injury, while Michael Morton is recovering from an injury he picked up during the pre-season.
