Leopards suffer yet another blow


As they say, it never rains but it pours, a reference to Lidoda Duvha’s bad start in the DStv Premiership as the club suffered their third consecutive loss last night against AmaZulu FC.

Usuthu got the better of Black Leopards 2-0 in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) encounter at the Jonsson Kings Park Stadium. The victory saw the KZN-based side move to ninth position on the log standings with four points from three games, whereas Leopards are placed 16th on the log without a single point.

The Limpopo-based outfit Head coach Patrick Aussems said that it was very unfortunate that his side did not convert the chances they created during the game.

“I think we had a good defensive organisation in the first 45 minutes and it was planned because we knew that at halftime we will change to something. In the second half, we were much better as we created more opportunities but it was unfortunate we couldn’t convert those chances,” said Aussems.

The Belgian mentor went on to say that the injury of Sibusiso Khumalo affected them and had to change their organisational structure.

“I see game after game we are improving in terms of play style, but sadly we remain at zero points. So, now it will be very urgent to grow up some points but for that to happen you need people who can find the back of the net. The problem is that we missed efficiency,” he added.

Leopards will return to league action on the 21st of November against Maritzburg United at Thohoyandou Stadium at 15h30.

The ‘Hasha Mulilo’ will be going out to ensure that they collect maximum points to put them in a good position as the pressure intensifies.
