Van Heerden believes Usuthu have what it takes to fight for their Absa Premiership survival with only six games remaining.
The 27-year-old left-back insisted that his team-mates cannot afford to settle for anything less than a win in each of their remaining games.
“It was a massive team effort and a massive win for us,” said Van Heerden.
“Everyone saw how dedicated we were to win the match.
“The boys just went out and do what we really needed to do on the day.
“We know that we really need all three points at the end of each game and that’s what we plan to do.
“We can’t be grateful for something less than three points at this stage of the season.
“We’ll continue fighting in each game we play.”
AmaZulu’s quest for top flight survival will face a massive test when they face log leaders Kaizer Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Thursday.
Kick-off is at 19:30.
