AmaZulu want to pluck Chamanaga's feathers


Kick off is at 15h30.

The Birds’ James Chamanaga continued his rich vein of form with a brace against Free State Stars on Wednesday to end Ea lla Koto’s 100 percent home record and add to his record five goal haul against Platinum Stars last weekend.

The Zambian is now clear at the top of the Absa Premiership scoring charts with nine goals and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally and helping Swallows to a third consecutive win.

AmaZulu, after four consecutive home games, the last of which ended in a 1-1 draw with BidVest Wits in midweek, will head out on the road for the first time since their 1-0 win over Platinum Stars in Rustenburg a month ago.

Strangely enough, Clive Barker’s team have garnered more points on the road thus far this season and a trip to the east of Johannesburg, despite Swallows’ good form, will not intimidate Usuthu’s players.

Their three wins on the road, allied to Swallows two home defeats already this season, means an upset could be on the cards, but Chamanga’s scoring form, his team’s surging confidence and the fact that AmaZulu have not won in four League games, suggests that the Birds should have too much firepower for their visitors.
