Bhele’s Warning To Sundowns
AmaZulu Eyeing A Double Over Mamelodi Sundowns
AmaZulu are eyeing an Absa Premiership double of wins over Mamelodi Sundowns, with their upcoming match to take place this weekend.
Usuthu, who beat Sundowns 2-1 in their first round league match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in October, are highly motivated for this weekend’s match.
Veteran strikers Siyabonga Nomvethe and Mabhuti Khenyeza scored one goal each, as the Durban-based outfit stunned Pitso Mosimane’s team with their win on October 21.
Nomvethe says only a victory will do for his team going into Friday’s match.
“We are challenging for a place in the top eight. It is a big match. We are at home and we need to get the maximum points in order to push for a top eight spot,” Nomvethe told AmaZulu’s official website.
“It won’t be easy for both teams. The two teams need the points for different reasons. We have a lot of games left. So, it is still possible for us to finish in the top eight. We cannot afford to relax because we still have a lot of games left. We have to take it one game at a time. Each game is a cup final for us. We need to focus and win games so that we can move further away from the relegation zone,” concluded the 40-year-old forward.
The match between AmaZulu and Sundowns at the King Zwelithini Stadium is scheduled for Friday 2 March at 18h00.
