Ntsikelelo Nyauza, is gearing up to take on AC Leopards in the Republic of
Congo on Saturday and he believes that the squad is in the right frame of mind
for the trip.

The defender, who has often been deployed at right-back by
Eric Tinkler, is in with a shout to start in the centre-back spot on the
weekend due to the suspension of Rooi Mahamutsa.
Ahead of what will be a tough away CAF Confederation Cup
group match, Nyauza says that the team is in high spirits.
“You can see that the guys are very motivated and there is a
positive vibe amongst the team,” he told Sport24.
“It is difficult to play in Africa due to the conditions and
the atmosphere but we just have to adapt to that.
When asked if he thought he would be starting at
centre-back, the ever-diplomatic Nyauza insisted that the decision was all up
to the coaches.
“I’m not sure, it depends on what you do on the training
"You never know the ideas of the coaches, if they might shuffle around
at the back.
“I think that whatever position they want me to play I just
have to go out and do my best.”
