AmaZulu captain Carlington Nyadombo on their struggles

AmaZulu captain Carlington Nyadombo has slammed his side’s lack of concentration as the main reason for their poor showing so far this season.
Usuthu are rock bottom of the Absa Premiership table without a win after 10 rounds of fixtures, and they go into Saturday’s trip to Platinum Stars desperate to turn things around.
“We have had a lack of concentration and we have been conceding silly goals,” Nyadombo tells KickOff.com.
“We have been our own worst enemy. It is not about being unlucky; we have been giving up too easily. Most of the games we have played we have been on top of the opposition, but we haven’t had that composure.”
The good news for Usuthu is that Stars, despite having booked their place in next weekend’s Telkom Knockout final against SuperSport United, have also been struggling in the PSL this season.
Dikwena are one position and four points ahead of Usuthu in the standings, though they have played one less match.
“Most of the time we do well against [Platinum] Stars,” says Nyadombo. “We have a belief that we are going to come back with three points.”
Usuthu go into the match without the injured Marc van Heerden, John Aruwah, Ayanda Dlamini and Larry Horaeb while Nhlanhla Shabalala is a doubt as he continues to recover from a groin strain.
