Cape Town - AmaZulu head coach Craig Rosslee has the support of the club's directors despite having failed to guide his team to a win thus far this season.

Usuthu currently occupy last spot in the Premiership standings, with just three points to their name after seven matches.

As a result there has been speculation that Rosslee will be relieved of his duties, but according to club spokesman Philani Mabaso this certainly won't be happening any time soon.

"[The directors] are fully supportive of Craig Rosslee and his technical team. They are going to use all means possible and try to maximise all the resources available so they can help the technical team change the fortunes of the club," Mabaso told The Sowetan.

"There was a time when we were rock-bottom when the club was coached by Neil Tovey but somehow we contrived a way of finishing ninth on the log at the end of the season.

"We also went to the Telkom Cup semifinals and were the losing finalists in the Nedbank Cup. When Roger Palmgren was coach, we were patient with him and held out until 12 games into the season when he [was] released after that."

Next on the agenda for AmaZulu is a Telkom Knockout clash with Bloemfontein Celtic on Saturday, October 4 at 20:15.
