12. AmaZulu - 1 red card: Majoro

AmaZulu striker Lehlohonolo Majoro says his side will be looking to bounce back when they meet Kaizer Chiefs in Friday's DStv Premiership clash.

Chiefs and AmaZulu are set to lock horns for the fourth time this season when Usuthu host the Soweto Giants at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Friday night.

Usuthu go into the fixture on the back of a 2-0 loss to Royal AM and Majoro believes an upcoming clash against his former side will be the perfect opportunity for the team to redeem themselves.

"After the disappointing result we got against Royal AM, I think we owe it to ourselves to rectify that [Royal AM loss] by getting maximum points, more especially because we’re playing at home. Each and every player is looking forward to the game," Majoro said.

"I believe it will be different to the last time we met them, in the sense that it will be more end-to-end attack because both teams just recently lost and we [AmaZulu and Chiefs] want to get maximum points. It will be a very entertaining game."

AmaZulu will be boosted by the return of central duo Keagan Buchanan and George Maluleka. The latter delivered a Man of the Match award-winning performance when Usuthu knocked out Chiefs in the MTN8 semi-finals.

For Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane, the game presents an opportunity to make ground on runaway log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns. A win on Friday could take Chiefs as high as second place on the log.
