AmaZulu v SuperSport

AmaZulu will be aiming to prolong their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday when they host SuperSport United at Kings Park.

Usuthu have gone seven games without defeat in the league and managed to win four of those outings to climb up to sixth position in the standings.

Coach Benni McCarthy's charges beat Kaizer Chiefs 2-1 in their last league game, but most recently lost 1-0 against Black Leopards in the Nedbank Cup last-16 on Saturday.

"There are a lot of positives and that just shows the strength in depth in the team that we have," McCarthy told the media after the Leopards defeat.

"So hopefully from now until the end of the season we will be able to enter more and more players and get more great performances.

"But at the end of the day it's about winning."

SuperSport come into the clash unbeaten in their last three games, in which they beat Cape Town City 2-1 before 1-1 draws against both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Matsatsantsa drew 1-1 with the Buccaneers last week Wednesday and are second in the league standings with 33 points from 18 games, three points behind leaders Sundowns who have two games in hand.

Even though SuperSport are struggling to keep up with Sundowns at the top of the table, coach Kaitano Tembo is unfazed.

"I am not really worried about that [seeing Sundowns pulling away from them] because we've given opportunities to young players and we have lost players like [Aubrey] Modiba, [Dean] Furman, [Clayton] Daniels and [Thabo] Mnyamane," said Tembo according to Sowetan.

"We never really replaced those players with big-name players… we've gone out to bring players we feel we can build the team with going forward, but we've stayed competitive. For me, that's what I look at and see the amount of work we're putting in."

When these two sides met in the league in January, the game ended all square 1-1.
