AMAZULU ARE READY FOR DUBE BIRDS
By: Siyanda Ndlovu
Amazulu coach Craigh Roslee is confident that his side will collect maximum points when they take on Moroka Swallows at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
“For this game obviously we know we are up against a team that is sitting pretty well on the log. It is important for us to get our home campaign going,” Roslee said.
The Durban side has collected six points out of a possible nine in their three opening Absa Premiership matches. They won their opening match against Soweto outfits, Orlando Pirates, at the Orlando Stadium.
The only time they dropped points was at home in Princes Magogo Stadium against the newly promoted Mpumalanga Black Aces. But they managed to come back with maximum points against Ajax Cape Town in their last match at Cape Town.
Swallows has also done well in their PSL campaign, but Roslee is well aware of the dangers the Dube Birds may cause on Saturday. Swallows have secured two wins and a draw and they have been playing a convincing football. Swallows, which tally with Mamelodi Sundowns with seven points, are on the 3rd spot on the league table just two points behind log-leaders Supersport United. There is nothing much that separates these two as Usuthu is on the 4th spot, just one point behind them.
When Roslee asked how he would improve his squad performance from the way they played their first three games, he expressed that a lot of things need to be improved from his side although they may seem to be in fine foam.
“At the back to 18, I would like to defend better I think we were last organized against Ajax and the last thing was that we bought Collins at the game. At wide again yes Ayanda was man of the match, but I would like to use a width of it a little bit more and then upfront. I think Drogba (Ndulula) he scored a goal again but I thought he had two great chances in the game against Ajax and I think that area of the finish which is a part of contention and again we worked on that last weekend too,” concluded Roslee.
