A 10-man Usuthu secured a 1-1 draw with Maritzburg United on Friday night to add to the 2-1 win Barker earned in his first game in charge, against former club AmaTuks.

He believes his side are ready to turn the corner and feels they are already becoming a more difficult side to beat.

"The character the players showed, they upped their feelings and they are happy about themselves, so yeah - the days of looking at AmaZulu as three points are gone," Barker said.

"We are not a charity club, so if they want points from us they have to really work hard and that's what I want - that belief.
