Amazulu coach Ayanda Dlamini rued the missed chances in their 1-1 draw away against Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila on the weekend.
Amigo Memela gave Usuthu the lead in the first half, and Siphelele Mthembu should have made it two-nil in the second half, but missed an open net. Rhulani Manzini equalised moments later for the hosts, as Dlamini rued that miss, and many other half-chances.
“For me its two points lost. To be honest with respect to the opponent if you look at the game, we played in difficult conditions,” Dlamini said after the game played on a semi-waterlogged pitch at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
“We got chances and not just chances, clear goalscoring chances. When you don’t score those… I’m disappointed.”
“Obviously we came back with a point away but for me, we keep losing these points not because the opposition is better than us, but it is because we are letting ourselves down.”
“Yes I am very disappointed but we have to look forward to the next one and keep working.”
“It means that there is something we are doing right if we get so many goalscoring opportunities each game.”
Amazulu’s new owners have already made their ambitions clear, and have recruited strongly for this season.
They can’t be happy to see their team currently 11th on the table, with just one victory in six games.
