Thanda Royal Zulu defender Ayabulela Konqobe is determined to ensure that the National First Division campaigners are promoted to the top flight come the end of the season.
With half of the season still remaining the smart money is on Amabhubesi to clinch an Absa Premiership spot as they currently occupy the top spot.
Not only do they find themselves sitting pretty at the top of the table, Thanda are way out in front with a commanding 10 point lead over their nearest rival.
Konqobe and co. get their league duties back under way against Mbombela United on Sunday 12 February at uMhlathuze Sport Complex and the former AmaZulu man realises the importance of picking up where they left off.
"We have to win our first second round game, especially after the good result at home against Cape Town All Stars" Konqobe told the club's official website.
"This will be a very big game for us. A good result will go a long way in building the player’s confidence going forward in the season."
"All the NFD teams are hard to beat, the players fight for everything until the last breath, but we will definitely take Amabhubesi to where they belong."
