Cape Town - Bafana Bafana striker Bongani Ndulula is in contention for AmaZulu's critical Premiership match against Mamelodi Sundowns in Durban on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old missed the past two matches due to an ankle injury and is fit again.

But Usuthu will have to make do without Mbulelo Mabizela as he sits out the final match of a three-game red card ban.

Steve Barker's men are in a dire situation, bottom of the table and almost clueless how to win as their Nedbank Cup fixture against National First Division leaders Golden Arrows suggested on Friday.

In four of their past five matches, they have not been able to hold onto leads.

The Brazilians come into the game on the back of a scrappy 2-0 win over Thanda Royal Zulu in their Nedbank Cup clash in Pretoria.

Home coach Steve Barker hopes his team can find some mental strength to bounce back from their setback to garner their first win in seven matches at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

"We have to bounce back because we have no choice," he said.

"In life, successful people always get up after they have been knocked down and every time they get knocked, they stand up again.

"That's all we can do. We have to go back and reflect on what happened against Arrows and bounce back on Tuesday against tough opposition."

Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane reported no fresh injuries over the weekend, but Hlompho Kekana is suspended.
