There remains a long road ahead of the Durban club who are

Barker was pleased with the win but admitted the side needed
more than one good win if they were going to avoid relegation this season.
"This is testimony to the hard work that the players
have been putting in and the belief that we can stay in the league," said
"One game is not sufficient and let's hope this win
will give us the confidence that has been lacking in the team.
"We have not been taking our chances and thought today
the difference is that we got the chances and took them," Barker added.
"All round this victory is lot of relief for me and the
players. They deserve the result because they have been working hard."
AmaZulu’s next PSL tie is against Mpumalanga Black Acs at
the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday, March 7.
Kick-off is at 20:00.
