Black Leopards are planning to give new AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee a rough ride when the two teams clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium tonight.
Rosslee will take charge of his first match as Usuthu coach after taking over from Roger Palmgren, who was sacked by the club following a horror start to the season which has them at the bottom of the log.
Leopards midfielder Raymond Monama acknowledges that the AmaZulu players will be looking to impress their new boss tonight, but he is confident the team can build on their last result – an away win at University of Pretoria.
"Even though AmaZulu are bottom of the log, the game won't be a walk in the park for us," he tells KickOff.com. "They have a new coach and obviously the players will want to impress him and make it into the starting line-up.
"But we did well against Tuks in our last game and want to continue where we left off. It's a home game and we have the motivation to do well in front of our own supporters."
Leopards are currently ninth on the log and a win tonight will see them move into the top eight.
"Our main goal this season is to finish in the top 8 - anything more than that will be a bonus. So far everything is going well and our new coach [Ian Palmer] is settling in well, which shows in our results since he took charge."
