The former Jomo Cosmos marksman has for the better part of the season clearly been fourth in the pecking order behind Bernard Parker, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Kingston Nkhatha, but he got his second League start on Tuesday against Amazulu and found the back of the net – his first official goal for Amakhosi.
Rusike reacts: “Getting a goal is good for me, good for my confidence. I have been understudying for Bernard [Parker], it’s been ages so it gave me a chance to get in there…
“We bounced back well [from the draw against University of Pretoria] and I’m happy for the guys… We are happy with the performance.”
The 22-year-old further highlights the quality at Chiefs’ disposal after Parker came off the bench to score a second on the night.
“He [Parker] also gets in and does the job. So actually you can see we’ve got 25 players who can do the job week in and week out,” he adds.
