AmaZulu coach Cavin Johnson was unfazed to see Clinton Larsen watching his team contest the 1-1 draw with Maritzburg United on Tuesday.
The Golden Arrows mentor was spotted in the stands as Usuthu shared the derby spoils at King Zwelithini Stadium.
Arrows, who shocked champions Bidvest Wits with a 3-1 scoreline in midweek, will host neighbouring AmaZulu at Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu on Sunday.
"I can give my lineup now if they want it," says Johnson. "It doesn't matter, of course you have to watch other teams play... it's part of your job."
Meanwhile, Johnson says he is still getting to know his charges following his off-season arrival at the Premiership returnees.
"We've still got a lot of hugging and kissing and playing together to do. And when that togetherness comes you'll know," says the former Platinum Stars tactician.
"You know when you get a new girlfriend, it takes time to get to know each other.
"But I think we're happy with our performances at home. Out of six we got four points, and we lost three on the road. It's always not easy to play in P.E," he adds, referring to the 2-0 defeat at Chippa United last month.
"At the same time we are playing 48 hours from each other and these things count when you are starting the season. So yeah, we are happy with what we have at the moment."
The Durban-based outfit, which has been boosted by the return from suspension of Togolese defender Sadat Ouro-Akoriko, are 11th in the standings with four points from three matches.
