Cape Town - AmaZulu striker Bornwell Mwape hopes to use his experience of fighting relegation back in his homeland of Zambia to Usuthu’s advantage.

The KwaZulu-Natal side currently find themselves marooned at bottom spot on the Premiership standings with seven points from 13 matches, leaving them seven points adrift of the three clubs directly above them.

But the 23-year-old Zambian-born striker Mwape is adamant that his side can climb out of their current dire situation.

"I was once in the same predicament at my former team [Nchanga Rangers] back home in Zambia a few seasons ago and I know what is it like to fight relegation. A never-say-die attitude and unity amongst us, the team’s players, will be a key for our survival," he told the AmaZulu website.

"I’m still much optimistic that we have what it takes to survive, and relegation is the last thing in our minds. I think the coach Steve (Barker) has come to change the team’s fortunes and since he has come he has instilled the winning mentality in the team.

"Only if we can rectify few defensive errors in our defence and improve in our finishing in front of goals, surely we will soon turn the corner," he added.
