Lungu anticipates challenging game against Usuthu


Gamphani Lungu says SuperSport United need to be more arrogant on the ball and keep position when they face AmaZulu FC in a DStv Premiership clash at the Kings Park Stadium this afternoon.

The game is scheduled to start at 17:00.

Matsatsantsa come into this game having played a draw in their last two matches against Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, with a 1-1 final score respectively. However, SuperSport hope to take aim at Usuthu and go back to their winning ways.

“In our previous match against Pirates, we struggled to get a few of the balls especially in the first half as we kept on losing the ball very cheaply. We need to improve on that because you can’t have a good game if you are always chasing the ball,” Lungu told the media.

“I think we haven’t started too well in the past three games. We had this slow start and had to pick up in the second half but in a game that is too late.”

Meanwhile, Benni McCarthy’s boys secured four wins from their last five league encounters. The KZN-based outfit would also like to stretch their unbeaten run to seven matches in the South African football top-flight.

“The preparations are going very good and shifted our focus to this game. We are aware that AmaZulu is also a ball playing team, so we need to match them when it comes to that. When you have the ball your energy level gets high and you don’t get too tired. We need to work as a team and fight together,” adds the 22-year-old speedy forward.

In head-to-head stats, SuperSport and AmaZulu have met in 47 league matches since 1990.

Kaitano Tembo’s side emerged victorious in 22 games while AmaZulu have won 15 of those. The two teams have shared the spoils on 10 occasions.
