STEVE BARKER ADAMANT OF TURNING USUTHU’S FORTUNES
By: Lucky Khanyile
AmaZulu FC coach, Steve Barker, believes all is not lost as they still have 81 points to play for in the National First Division 2015/16 season.
Barker is aware of the dangers of not collecting maximum points in the early stages of the season as his side has managed to collect four points in three matches. Barker
lamented the lack of composure in front of goals.
“It’s been difficult for us, we have played consistently decently if not our best but performances hasn’t shown the results. We are disappointed in the recent results but
we know in life, when you win you mustn’t celebrate too much and when you lose you mustn’t berate yourself,” said Barker.
Usuthu has managed to score just two goals in three matches and will be looking to increase that tally if they have any hopes of gaining PSL status at the end of the
Barker is certain that the sooner they start converting their chances, they are deemed to collect maximum points, as they have been tight at the back.
“It is unfortunate that we haven’t been scoring but at least we are creating.
It’s just the matter of ensuring that we are taking those chances and with a bit of luck.
But we do need goals to win matches to start accumulating those much-needed points,” he said.
Barker added, “We can’t be doing one thing that doesn’t produce the results, so there will be players who will be given a run to change our fortunes.”
The Durban based-outfit will be looking to turn their fortunes when they meet African Warriors at Charles Mopeli Stadium, Saturday.
