AmaZulu caretaker coach Ayanda Dlamini says his players are ready for war and will fight tooth and nail until the last match of the Absa Premiership is concluded in their bid to retain their top-flight status.
Dlamini believes that tactics won’t matter much on match days as the team that wants it more with the players in the right frame of mind will escape the chop to the GladAfrica Championship.
“There will be tactics involved but I think for these six games remaining, it will be about who wants it more than the other, the fight that you put out on the field that counts,” said Dlamini.
‘Usuthu’ will tackle fellow strugglers Baroka in their first match of the season restart at their new home (Bio Bubble Base) of Lucas Moripe Stadium on the 15th of August.
Both sides are level on points (23) with Baroka two places above AmaZulu in 13th place on goal difference.
“It will be a big challenge. Mentally for the players and so we are trying to work on that. The response from the players is very positive,” added Dlamini.
“It’s very different to train now because we know when we are starting the games compared to when we didn’t know.
“Now we have some direction. The attitude has been very good from the boys and it helps that we are going to resume the league,” concluded the AmaZulu mentor.
