Cape Town - AmaZulu striker Rhulani Manzini says the Durban side are in a confident mood ahead of their Telkom Knockout first round clash with Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

Usuthu have made a promising start to the season and had their confidence significantly boosted with a win over African champions Mamelodi Sundowns last weekend.

Their next task is a Telkom Knockout last 16 fixture against Amakhosi at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.

Manzini says the Usuthu players are raring to now test themselves against the country's biggest club and has warned Chiefs that they are in for a tough evening.

"All has been well for us in preparation for the game against Chiefs. We are just waiting for them for the game on the weekend," the striker told SoccerLaduma

"We are not putting pressure on us. Chiefs are a big team so we're expecting a big game. That is a motivation in itself. We are playing at home, so we don't have pressure. We will give them a run for their money. We are going to push them until the end," Manzini continued.

"The mood is good. The coach (Cavin Johnson) is pushing us and we are trying to follow each and every instruction from him in each and every game. 

"We have been playing very well because we have been working very hard. We will fight our hearts out against Chiefs. We urge the supporters to come and support us whether we win or lose."
