The head coach has identified several positives in his side’s opening DSTV Premiership clash as Usuthu came back from a goal down to secure a point against Orlando Pirates at the Johnson Kings Park Stadium, 24 October.
“I think it was a game of two sides that performed well. They had some good stages where they kept the ball and threatened us. We also had our moments, and I think the boys did very well.”
“Obviously, it is still our first game, but I am very happy with what I saw in our side. The intensity, in our attack, and the way we defended.”
“It is getting there. We know we still have a lot of work to do but we can take this game’s positives and work from here,” the coach said.
“Obviously, one must mention Memela. He was our top performer today, among the rest of group. He made a huge difference, he showed his experience, that he has been playing in big games for some time.”
“He rose to the occasion, even when we brought in Makhaula you could see, just to stabilize that midfield. Like I say, it is our first game, there is a lot of players that are new in the team, but it is going to the right direction,” said Dlamini.
AmaZulu’s next league match is against TS Galaxy in Mbombela on 28 October, Wednesday night.
