Rosslee: AmaZulu mean business now

AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee said that his players will be going all out when they host Orlando Pirates on Wednesday

The Usuthu coach said that their game against Ajax was proof that his team is improving. Rosslee was satisfied with the point, but disappointed with the approach from his team.

“I think we were supposed to win the game against Ajax. We played well and again we were a bit unlucky when it came to the finishing. We now mean business and we have learnt from our mistakes and have found our ground,” said Rosslee.

Rosslee said that going into the Orlando Pirates game, he is aware that they are a big club but he believes that AmaZulu are good enough to match their standard.

“I can confirm that my players will not just let this one go easy. We just came from a draw so we need points and we want full points against Pirates. I know that they are a big club, but I believe in my players,” he said. 

AmaZulu are without their playmaker once again, Marc Van Heerden who is most likely to sit out for the next 14 days.

“It is unfortunate that we will be playing without Marc, but I believe it is best not to rush the injury as it might backfire on us. I am sure when he is better he will come back and add value to the team. Going forward we have great players like Khulekani Madondo and in the front Goodman and Ayanda Dlamini are both in good form,” he said.

Another player that will be making a return for Usuthu is Andile Khumalo who has not featured much this year due to an injury.

“It is great to have players like Khumalo back to the side, but what is more important here is that we show the same fighting spirit that we showed against Ajax Cape Town. The match will not be easy," said Rosslee.
