Cape Town - AmaZulu caretaker coach Wilfred Mugeyi has revealed that he will be working on improving his side's finishing in the current international break.

Usuthu find themselves rooted to the foot of the Absa Premiership standings, having collected just four points from their opening ten fixtures of the campaign.

They key statistic that stands out during this period is Amazulu's goals-for column, which certainly makes for worrying reading.

The Durban-based outfit have found the back of the net just five times, and in the process recording four draws and six defeats.

Mugeyi is determined to steady the ship, though, by working on his side's finishing over the next week.

He told the club's official website: "Look we did well especially against Kaizer Chiefs and we needed to convert our chances, but we couldn't.

"So, my focal point is to sharpen our finishing during this international break.

"We played against our Vodacom side in a friendly and that gave us an idea of how far and how much help we need.

"We'll also play against Golden Arrows because it's a concern to play good football, create chances but fail to score and end up losing the match.

"However, I'm confident we'll turn the corner and improve our situation."

The KwaZulu-Natal based outfit remains rooted to the bottom of the log with only four points after 10 rounds of the 2014/15 PSL season. 

They will be looking to kick-start their campaign when they take on Platinum Stars on November 22. 

Kick-off at 18:00.
