The Buccaneers will be at the King Zwelithini Stadium for their Absa Premiership match against Usuthu on Sunday afternoon.

The Soweto giants will have to do better than their 1-1 first round draw with the KwaZulu-Natal outfit if they aim to keep any title hopes alive for this season.        

Going into the match, Bucs’ technical team will be aware that their away form needs to improve, as it has let them down in some of the matches this season.

Out of the 13 matches played away so far this season, Bucs have managed to collect 20 points, compared to the 26 points they collected at home from the same number of matches.

In total, the Buccaneers have accumulated 46 points from 26 matches, and are now trailing Mamelodi Sundowns with three points, following the midweek 0-0 draw with SuperSport United. 

The Brazilians, who are scheduled to host Bidvest Wits at Loftus Versfeld Stadium this Saturday in what is anticipated to be one of the weekend’s big matches, have played one match less compared to Bucs.  

Bucs’ away form in the 2017/18 season: 

1-1 Baroka, 0-0 Maritzburg United, 0-1 Bidvest Wits, 2-2 Polokwane City, 0-0 Kaizer Chiefs, 1-0 Bloemfontein Celtic, 1-2 Free State Stars, 3-1 Mamelodi Sundowns, 2-0 Platinum Stars, 0-3 Ajax Cape Town, 4-2 Chippa United, 2-1 Golden Arrows and 0-0 SuperSport United = 20 points. 

Bucs’ home form in the 2017/18 season: 

W-W-W-D-L-D-D-D-W-D-W-W-W = 26 points.

While Bucs have not lost a league match since losing 3-0 against Ajax Cape Town in January, coach Milutin Sredojevic and his team will know that anything less than a win against AmaZulu on Sunday could spell an end to the club’s title hopes this season, depending on the results of other matches.

The heartbreaking part would be watching the yellow train clinch the league on goal difference.
