Cape Town - AmaZulu caretaker coach Wilfred Mugeyi admits he is "enjoying every minute" of his time in the hot seat and is confident he can help secure the club's Premiership survival this season.

The tactician was named Craig Rosslee's temporary successor at the beginning of October after the boss was sacked following a disastrous start to the PSL season, where Usuthu failed to win any of their opening seven league matches.

Mugeyi is still looking to find his feet with the Durban club, having lost his first official game since taking up the reins, against Chippa United, while he was also unable to keep alive their Telkom Knockout adventure as they lost to Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarter-finals.

However, the coach is confident he will soon get the club back on its feet, saying: "I am enjoying every minute of it.

"The boys are responding well to my methods and philosophy as you have seen against Sundowns. If we can play like that throughout the season we will survive."

Next up for AmaZulu is the clash against Mpumalanga Black Aces, who sit amongst the top five in the PSL after an impressive start to the next campaign.

Speaking of the upcoming encounter, Mugeyi said: "These are games that bring the best out of us. They (Aces) can play, they are a team that knock the ball around. We showed against Sundowns that we can compete and that we can play."
