Lehlohonolo Majoro says AmaZulu are raring to go and ready to take on Black Leopards in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.
The two teams meet in the last sixteen game at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Majoro says he has been encouraged by what he has seen at Usuthu training and feels the players are geared up for the game.
However he warns that Leopards will be buoyed by their mid-week win over Golden Arrows, and Kosta Papic’s arrival at the club.
“Yeah, we’ve been preparing for the Nedbank game. So far, so good. Everyone is looking forward to Saturday’s game,” Majoro told AmaZulu media.
“And I believe this cup game is as important as a league game. Because judging with the number of players we have, it gives an opportunity for the coach to rotate the squad and give almost each and every one an opportunity to play and it’s very important for us.”
“I believe each and every player needs that momentum because when we win, we win as a team. And we all know that there’s a good mood within the team when you’re on a winning streak and we want to keep that mood and continue winning as many games as possible.”
“And judging by the way, we train, judging the way the guys commit themselves every time when they come here for training sessions, I believe we’re gonna go a long way.”
“Yes, It is true that Leopards is down there, but a cup game is different than a league game. With them winning [on Tuesday]. I think it’s a confidence booster. And again, with a new coach coming in. Obviously, each and every player gets an opportunity to prove himself.”
“So it’s going to be a different ballgame. But I have full confidence in our team. We’ve been preparing well. We’ve been doing well and we are well equipped for whatever Leopards is gonna throw at us, based on what I see at training sessions and the experience that we have and the kind of football that we play.”
