Cape Town - Platinum Stars coach Cavin Johnson has warned football fans to expect a hard-fought encounter between his side and AmaZulu at Princess Magogo Stadium.

Relegation-threatened AmaZulu are currently bottom of the Premiership, but Johnson is well aware they have only lost once in their last seven league games.

AmaZulu are fighting desperately and effectively against the drop, and Johnson is sufficiently wary of their opponents.

With just four fixtures of the season remaining, Dikwena's coach is not convinced his own side is yet safe from relegation and expects the game against Usuthu to be a battling affair.

"We are playing a team that will be eager to avoid relegation and the match is going to be very tough," he told KickOff.

"We have prepared the guys well mentally and physically for this game because it will not be easy. As far as I am concerned, we are also fighting relegation so we also want a win.

"There will be not pretty football tonight. It is all about doing all that we can to make sure that we win the match.”
