Usuthu desperate for three points

Premiership

AmaZulu will be looking for maximum points when they host SuperSport United at King Zwelithini Stadium tonight.

Michael Morton revealed they are well prepared to make sure they finish their season strongly after not doing so well in the second round. Usuthu haven't won in their last three matches, which has cause lot of debate about the mental strength of their players.

Hard-tackling midfielder Morton says for them to make sure they bring back smiles for their fans they have to have the same mentality they had after being docked six points earlier this season.

"We know we haven't done well lately after a good run we had, especially at home. We managed to bounce back after losing six points and we need to bring back that fighting spirit in our last four matches. We have to start against SuperSport and get those points," Morton tells KickOff.com.

"I think for us to get positive results, we have to be on top of our game. They are a very dangerous team and in good spirits after beating [Mamelodi] Sundowns. If we can try to stop [Teboho] Mokoena and Aubrey Modiba we'll have a good day, they are currently amongst the in-form players they have in their camp."

On their position on the log, Morton wants to see them finishing in a safe position as he believes it is no longer up to them to finish in the top eight.

"We need to be realistic, the possibility for us is number nine or ten, it's not up to us to finish in the top eight, we just need to aim for a safe standing," he adds.
