Cape Town - Ayanda Dlamini believes AmaZulu have built up enough momentum to secure their league safety in the remaining Premiership fixtures.

Usuthu have managed to give themselves a fighting chance of beating the dreaded drop, after picking up six points from their last three fixtures.

They are level on points with bottom-of-the-table Moroka Swallows and five points behind the team above, Free State Stars.

However, Dlamini is optimistic their recent good form will stand them in good stead as the season nears its conclusion.

"I think we have done well to get to where we are now because at the start of the year there was no hope but we have fought well and we are in a better position," Dlamini told Sunday World.

"The momentum of the team is very good and there is positive energy flowing from everyone, so I think we will achieve our goal.

"Platinum Stars though are very dangerous and Cavin Johnson has done an excellent job with them in his second spell. They are playing a good brand of football but we have come to a stage where we don't worry about our opponents.”

AmaZulu will face SuperSport United, Pretoria University and Maritzburg United in their final three league fixtures.
