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.

more from Chiefs
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
“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.
