Johannesburg - AmaZulu coach Craig Roslee took a swipe at his charges citing attitude as the reason for their 3-1 loss to Wits on Saturday.
"I think the players arrived in this game knowing we are out of the relegation zone and that attitude got us in trouble." Roslee said.
"We conceded a goal from some poor defensive work but then did well to come back and score a great goal. We created a lot of chances but failed to finish."
The loss saw Usuthu remain fifth from bottom, but safe from the dreaded drop where relegation threatened Chippa United, Ajax Cape Town and Black Leopards will fight it out.
Bongani Ndulula scored for Usuthu to level the scores early in the first half and the goal seemed to have injected some life into the whole team as they surged forward but were unable to get past Andre Arendse, in goal for Wits.
With Wits coach Clive Barker having come from AmaZulu, many would have credited the win to his inside knowledge of his opponents but Roslee squashed that suggestion and instead praised his counterpart's tactics on the day.
"Clive Barker has a fantastic squad of players. As you saw today, it was hard to match them because of the quality of their squad compared to ours," Roslee said.
"Without a doubt we will be going into the transfer market."
AmaZulu face Chippa United in their final game of the season and, should they beat the Chilli Boys, it could well spell relegation for the Cape Town rookies.
