Cape Town - AmaZulu midfielder Tshepo Liphoko, who has played a prominent role during the current Premiership campaign, still wants to repay the faith that coach Steve Barker has placed in him this season.

Liphoko has made 13 appearances this term and has even breached opposition defences twice during that period.

However, Usuthu still face the very realistic prospect of being relegated when the season ends, and Liphoko wants to do all within his power to ensure his club survives the proverbial drop.

"I am grateful for coach Steve for having high confidence in me, even while I was injured," Liphoko told the club’s website.

“I think I owe it to him to maintain my trust by delivering beyond expectations when I get my chance to play.”

The next assignment for AmaZulu is a trip to Mpumalanga, where they will play against Black Aces on Saturday. It is a match which the team must win and Liphoko hopes to be fully involved in that assignment.

“All the guys are doing well and I must work extra hard to get to the starting line-up.

“I have recovered fully and it’s just a matter of playing.

“It’s not going to be easy to just walk into the team since the team is in good form, even though we were losing but the guys were playing well," said Liphoko.
