Dlamini, assisted by Moeneeb Josephs, beat Kaizer Chiefs in his first game in charge of the Durban-based side while Majoro has spent time training alone after being removed from the first team before lockdown.

According to a source close to Usuthu, the club is now close to reaching an agreement to terminate Vukusic's contract.
