Cape Town - AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee said his players need to motivate themselves in order to win honours in the Premier Soccer League (PSL) this season.

Rosslee was speaking about Usuthu’s tremendous start to the current season, after saving them from relegation when he joined them in the second half of last season.

“At the end of the day, these boys need to motivate themselves, we will train and get them to understand how we want them to play but the desire to win and bury chances needs to come from within,” Rosslee told Sport24.

“All of our jobs are to sharpen them up yes but they too need to work harder.”

The KZN-based outfit started the 2013/14 season like a house on fire, grabbing three victories and two draws from their opening six games and the former Ajax Cape Town mentor hailed the determination shown by his front men, in particular Bongani Ndulula.

The coach also stressed that he expects goals to flow from everywhere instead of relying on strikers only.

“I’ve also believed that a player like “Drogba” (Ndulula) is good for a goal a game.”

“Sthembiso (Ngcobo) who’s been out for a while too can come right with the more games and more confidence and as well as Ayanda (Dlamini).

“More importantly is that we can find goals from all over the park and not only rely on the three alone.

“If we can provide goals from the set pieces and corners it is good for the team,” he added.

AmaZulu will travel to the Free State to tackle Steve Khompela’s Free State Stars in the opening round of the Telkom Knockout on Saturday at the Goble Park stadium.

Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
