Usuthu remain the only winless team of the 2014/15 campaign.
Their poor form, which includes three defeats and three draws, has left them bottom of the standings with pressure mounting on Usuthu coach Craig Rosslee.
However, Madondo believes that there is a sense of optimistic despite their poor start.
"We all know the situation of the club and the position we're in," he said. "We have to fight for everything against Wits.
"Everyone is aware of that and we are all prepared to put in a good shift to make sure we change the situation on the log."
The Durbanites are boosted by news that Bongani Ndulula is fit again after missing the last game due to a hamstring injury.
Kenya midfielder Paul Were is also available, with the only casualty sidelined being winger Nkosinathi Mthiyane.
AmaZulu look set on going for all three points when they face a stern test in Bidvest Wits.
In head-to-head stats, Wits and AmaZulu have met in 51 league matches since 1985.
The Clever Boys have 19 wins compared to 12 for Usuthu, while 20 matches have been drawn.
Wits have won 13 of their 26 home matches against AmaZulu, suffering just five defeats down the years.
Last season the Johannesburg side took four points off their Durban counterparts, drawing 1-1 in Gauteng before a 1-0 win in the return match in KwaZulu-Natal.
Kick-Off is scheduled for Friday, September 26 at 20:00.
