Golden Arrows Head Coach Mandla Ncikazi is expecting a tough game in the derby against AmaZulu this evening.
AmaZulu host Arrows at the Kings Park Stadium with kick off scheduled for 17h30 today.
While Ncikazi is confident in his own team, he says that AmaZulu have been busy in the market, recruiting well, and they are going to be dangerous this season, especially after appointing Benni McCarthy.
“Our match against AmaZulu FC, it’s going to be a tough one based on a number of factors,” Ncikazi said the build up to the game.
“The fact that they have appointed Benni McCarthy, who is a very good coach. We know his input at Cape Town City, we know him at Pirates, we know him as the (most) prolific striker this country ever produced.”
“It’s not going to be easy. AmaZulu have recruited very well in the market, they’ve been busy in the market, the busiest team in the market, and they’ve recruited top players in their set-up.”
“Having said that, Arrows have got their own model of how they do things. We trust in our processes, we trust in the team unity, we trust the team spirit, and we haven’t done badly.”
