The PSL is currently on a hiatus due to the upcoming  2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Equatorial Guinea and Barker is grateful for the mid-season break as he looks to improve his squad.

Barker took up the reins at Usuthu towards the end November, taking over from Zimbabwean Wilfred Mugeyi.

However, the Durban-based outfit find themselves propping up the foot of league table at the season's half-way point, with just nine points to their name.

"We're probably the most appreciative club of this break because we need all the help we can get. Right now we're just going to be hard at work and hopefully have a few additions in the team," Barker told the clubs official website.

"The good thing is that we all know what is needed and the players all have to be prepared for it."

Meanwhile, Barker also revealed that he was more than satisfied with the application of his players in their first training session of 2015.

He added: "For a first training session after the break I'm very pleased.

"The players gave a very good account of themselves, they know what's expected of them at this stage."
