We finish off 2018 with a Durban Derby match against AmaZulu FC at King Zwelithini Stadium tomorrow at 15h30.
Durban can expect a clash of the KZN Titans as both teams will want to claim boasting rights after 90 minutes on Saturday.
In the last two Derby outings against each other, each of the teams has claimed a win. We defeated AmaZulu 4-1 last season at home in September and Usuthu replied with a 2-1 win in February this year.
We have found some strong form in the last 2 games, and the boys had a great fight back against Wits from being down 2-0 to securing a draw away against the Clever Boys.
The squad have pulled together well and found some confidence on the field which has showed on the field. Confidence has improved and this has been evident in their play.
It is a mindset that they will be encouraged to carry onto the field on Saturday when facing AmaZulu in Umlazi.
Our opponents have been riding the crest of some good play as well. And, up until a 3-1 defeat to Black Leopards had gone 3-for-3, managing to collect some needed points.
This has seen them climb to 11th place on the log, just 3 points behind us.
This makes the pressure for a win just that much more for both teams, and makes the Derby so much more important.
We would love to see our supporters out in force on Saturday, getting behind the team as we play our last game before the Festive break.
Should you not be there, we will be covering the game from the stadium, and you will be able to follow it on our social media channels.
