Usuthu are currently 16th in the Premiership standings and
have been for the greater part of the season.
However, a win against Chiefs will see the club move as high

and Moroka Swallows ahead of their matches next week.
"Unfortunately in the situation we are at, a draw will

The jury is still out on whether AmaZulu have the capacity
to upset the applecart this week, especially against a Chiefs team desperate to
win the league title again.
However, it is also perhaps worth noting that Usuthu are
also desperate for results and that is something that Dlamini thinks will stand
his team in good stead.
"Yes Kaizer Chiefs are in good form but if we continue
to display the same attitude we did against Free State Stars and our previous

"Chiefs are currently in good form and I am sure they
will also be trying to maintain their lead. Hard work and team work can give us
the desired results.
“Over the past we have won matches that many did not think
we would, so we are fully aware how important this match is to us."
Kick-off is at 19:00.
