Usuthu registered their first win of the season in the last
16, when they came from two goals down to beat Bloemfontein Celtic 3-2 and
progress to the quarter-finals.
They have yet to win the league and Nyadombo is happy to use
the break to re-align their focus, as recent cup success could be a distraction
to their Premiership ambitions.
"After our win against Celtic, I think we need a break
because we have to regroup and study our errors so that we come back a better
side," said the Usuthu skipper.
"We sat down with the guys and said no matter how hard
Celtic comes on us, we need to keep going and search for a win - fortunately,
"We're eager to fight and die for the team, we have the
energy and I believe we need to work extra harder. Sometimes you need luck in
football and that's why we need to work hard and hopefully things will change
