Cape Town - AmaZulu midfielder Tshepo Liphoko hopes his performances for the national U20 team at the Commonwealth Cup can be replicated when the Premiership resumes later this month.

Usuthu are currently fighting to secure their future in the South African top flight and Liphoko wants to do all he can to ensure that the objective is realised.

Goals have been few and far between for AmaZulu during this campaign and Liphoko wants to try and contribute more in this sphere if he can.

The 19-year-old has already breached opposition defences twice during the current league campaign and he wants to try and build on that in 2015.

"With all the experience that I have gathered from the camp, I am looking forward to implementing everything and bring positive change to the club," said Liphoko.

"I know that the senior players and the coach have always been supportive and I am hoping that the relationships will continue."

However, there is a complication for Liphoko, who sustained an injury during the Commonwealth Cup in Russia and the expectation is that he will undergo further assessments with the AmaZulu medical team this week.

The midfielder understands that it is an obstacle and he is ready to try and overcome it.

"I am a bit disappointed with the injury and I will only be able to know tomorrow how serious it is when I meet with the AmaZulu medical staff," added Liphoko.
