AmaZulu coach sends warning to Premiership team


AmaZulu coach Brandon Truter has declared his intention to beat any side that comes to the Moses Mabhida stadium.

"We want to make it [Moses Mabhida Stadium] a fortress. No team should come here and think they’re collecting points. That’s what we want to create. Right now the mentality is right,” he told the media.

Truter was reflecting on AmaZulu’s win over last season’s league runners-up Cape Town City. The Citizens' Khanyisa Mayo scored the opener before Gabadinho Mhango got the equaliser, continuing his great start to life in Durban with his second consecutive goal in the league and Augustine Kwembu added a second for Usuthu to seal the victory.

The win pushed AmaZulu up to third place on the table while demoting Cape Town city to their third straight loss in as many games.

AmaZulu are now one of only three teams that remain undefeated in the league alongside Richards Bay and TS Galaxy. Usuthu’s next encounter is a trip to Soweto to take on Swallows and Truter is confident his side has the firepower to win

"The goal Gabadihno scored [against City] is a cracker and could be a contender for Goal of the Season already. And then you have the likes of Majoro and Dumisani Zuma, so there’s definitely firepower upfront but we need to stop the goals from coming in. That’s our main concern at this moment," he said.

In addition to Mhango and Dumisani Zuma, Usuthu have beefed up their squad with highly rated Ethan Brooks from TS Galaxy and George Maluleka from Mamelodi Sundowns
