It hasn’t been easy to prepare particularly after an unfortunate result against TTM in the Cup. But we have to dust ourselves and show some mental resolve and dig deep and produce a good performance because when two very good teams meet you have no chance if you don’t play very well.
“We have to play very well and give ourselves a chance to win the match against a very good team with a very good technical staff, well-coached and also with very good players. AmaZulu have very good players and that is why their results have been very good.”
Having played 22 league matches so far, AmaZulu have no player amongst the league’s top scorers but they are the fourth-highest scoring side in this campaign.
Their player with the most goals is former Orlando Pirates midfielder Luvuyo Memela, who has found the back of the net in the league on six occasions, followed by another ex-Buccaneer star Lehlohonolo Majoro, who has five goals.
But that does not stop Mokwena from treating AmaZulu as a major threat as he takes time to profile their opponents and identify the dangermen they will be facing.
“This is what I say they are a very well-coached side because there is a clear identity. Their schemes are clear, the build-up structure is clear, the high-pressing instincts are clear. The final third preparation in terms of how they build the attack is also clear,” said Mokwena.
“The influence of the midfield, the triangle that they have with [Sphesihle] Maduna, [Makhehlene] Makhaula or [Sitethemba] Sithebe and then Xola Mlambo in the space, you have the possibilities of very good players who influence both phases of the game.
Mamelodi Sundowns will be looking to extend their lead on the Premier Soccer League table when they visit AmaZulu in Wednesday’s clash at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium.
It is a top-of-the-table clash between log leaders Sundowns and second-placed AmaZulu, who pose a threat to Masandawana’s 20-match unbeaten run in the league.
The Brazilians currently enjoy a six point lead, having played two games fewer than their KwaZulu-Natal opponents.
A win for Sundowns will see them going nine points clear at the top in what would be huge strides in their bid for a fourth straight PSL title
