AmaZulu aim to finish on a high

AmaZulu are travelling to the Free State to face a disorganised Bloemfontein Celtic looking for a victory in the last round of Absa Premiership matches on Saturday.

Usuthu coach Cavin Johnson hinted that he will give some players an opportunity to impress as he feels some are struggling with fatigue after a very long and challenging season.

"We've got professional players and we need to treat them as professional, they've been playing for eight months, we can't expect them to give us the same performances," said Johnson.

"We will give a few players a chance to stamp their authority, we are very serious and we have to finish well."

AmaZulu are safe from relegation, while on the other side Celtic will be looking to cement a top-eight finish despite having one of their worst seasons in terms of management issues.

Johnson knows that it won't be easy but plans to end the season in good spirits and probably give Siyabonga Nomvethe a proper send-off as he retires.

"It won't be an easy match, too many things are happening but we are going there to get maximum points," he concluded.
