Cape Town - AmaZulu defender Carlington Nyadombo says his team-mates need to maintain their positive attitude and look on the brighter side following back-to-back defeats in the Absa Premiership.
AmaZulu lost 2-0 in the KwaZulu-Natal derby 2-0 to Maritzburg United over the weekend.
The most humiliating result of the season so far was their 7-1 thumping by Mamelodi Sundowns at the Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria two weeks ago.
The Zimbabwean international told the club’s official website
that team spirit will be the key to overcome the current gloom they are facing.
“After the last two games that we lost we just need to keep the morale that we’ve always had,” said the centre-back.
“When the team starts losing it’s easy for people to start looking down and start pointing fingers but this is the time where we need one another the most.
“We need to keep encouraging each other so that we can get back up in the next game and so far that’s what has been happening.”
Although the two loses exerted more pressure on head coach, Craig Rosslee, Nyadombo hailed the former Ajax Cape Town mentor for the way he has continued to motivate his charges despite the unfavourable results.
“Things are not going well but he has the belief that we can be a better team than what we are doing now,” added Nyadombo.
“He doesn’t want us to keep making the same mistakes, we have also accepted our faults as players, and right now he’s building us for the next game against Polokwane City.
“We know it’s going to be a tough challenge because there are no small teams in the PSL and every game is crucial.
“Their confidence is high after beating Sundowns but we will prepare for the game and try to get more points away from home.”
Usuthu are currently on the seventh spot after making a good start to the season.
Their next game will be against Polokwane City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium next Wednesday.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
