Orlando Pirates will find AmaZulu prepared for their match at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

In their attempt to overtake Mamelodi Sundowns on the PSL log, as well as qualify for one of the CAF competitions, Bucs will have to beat Usuthu in their match this Sunday.

AmaZulu head coach, Cavin Johnson, says his team has prepared well to face Pirates in what has been dubbed as a massive match between two of the oldest teams in Mzansi. 

“It’s always a big game against Pirates but they’re coming to King Zwelithini Stadium and they’ve been on a very, very good run. I think they haven’t lost for quite some time but at the same time I think it’s two of the oldest horses playing this weekend against each other at King Zwelithini,” Johnson told AmaZulu’s official website.

AmaZulu go into the match in 11th place on the PSL log and a win for the Durban-based side could take them inside the top eight bracket, with three matches remaining for their 2017/18 campaign.

“You standing here now, you can hear the atmosphere within the club is always high when we play against the bigger teams. Players want to play, players want to show that they want to come out. But in one moment at this time of the season as well everybody’s had some game-time. Everybody’s prepared and they don’t have any physical injuries or nobody is nursing injuries, anything like that,” added Johnson.

“Sometimes it [team selection for a big game] becomes very difficult.

“Because one of them will show extra work probably the whole week. You have to be very, very careful, very mindful about what they bring to the team on that particular day, and what the team needs from them,” he added. "So, yes, in some moments, a little bit difficult but in other moments it’s not been difficult,” concluded the coach. 

The match takes place tomorrow at 15:00.

@Bucsfever16, the Coach 'statement is understood to mean that he does not fear rotte.

I'm sure Cavin Johnson wanted to say Amazulu are prepared to bow down before The Mighty Buccaneers but was misinterpreted.

Sometimes it concerns me when small teams speak so lowly about fau and rotte...I can deduce from Johnson 's remarks that he doesn't rate rotte that high.
