Amazulu priding themselves after their win over Thanda Royal Zulu will not be a “walk in the park” and we will go out knowing that we up against a huge challenge. It is a derby and any thing is possible for either side. We will have to lift ourselves up for this game. It is one our heavy weight clashes of the season.

I was not pleased with our performance against Celtic, but my team came away with another creditable result. I must admit, it wasn’t our best performance and we had “lady luck” on our side. It was pleasing though that our boys showed character and defensive discipline to ride out some spirited attacking and remain unbeaten in three matches.

Amazulu will be another tough hurdle, we I have a clean bill of health and have addressed certain technical tactical concerns that I observed against Celtic. I know Clive Barker and Neil Tovey and I have a healthy respect for them. They must have analyzed our games to-date and will have a tactical ploy to stop our accumulation of points.

We are confident, but aware that we will have to stick to our plan to get points from this game. They on the other hand with the win against Thanda will have the belief and confidence that they could get one over us. My lads know that is where the buck stops and will give their best come Saturday.

To our supporters that were rooting for us in Bloemfontein thank you for your presence. You made the difference. I know it is frustrating that we have to play away from the “City of Choice” again. The Club has organized transport to Hammarsdale for your convenience and I am sure management are doing their best to ensure our next home game will be played at our temporary home, the Woodburn Rugby Stadium. Remember the team and I need you there, you are our 12th man.
