AmaZulu striker Lehlohonolo Majoro Believes his side have nothing to fear from Swallows FC in today's exciting-looking match-up.
Majoro believes Usuthu are starting to establish themselves as one of the teams to beat in the DStv Premiership, just like the Dube Birds have done since the start of the season.
Under coach Benni McCarthy, Usuthu have shown signs of improvement with some impressive performances of late that have garnered three straight wins in the league and a Nedbank Cup last 32 victory over Golden Arrows.
And while Majoro respects the early league contenders, he believes the Dobsonville-based team is no different to the one from KwaZulu-Natal.
"We are playing Swallows, which is a team that's been doing well in the league. I think it's one of the few teams that hasn't lost in the league this season and you don't accomplish that if you're not good and prepared," the Usuthu striker told the club's media team.
"So I believe it's a well-developed team, well-structured but it's nothing different to us because we are starting to become a team to beat and we are doing well. I love the spirit that we have, it has shown in the last two games we played where we managed to do well towards the end of the game.
"So we have never-give-up spirit and I believe when we play that game, we just have to go there and come back with three points."
Usuthu have also proven to be a team that doesn't rely on one player and Majoro believes that is also good motivation going into today's clash (15h30).
"I think for the fact that all attacking players have goals it tells you what kind of a team we have. We can rely on whoever is put on the field of play and I like the fact that there's competition because that builds players," he added.
"So if you train competitively it's bound to happen that you do well in the game. With the kind of players we have in attack, we will deliver against Swallows and we also have a couple of defenders who have also contributed to scoring goals. We defend as a team and we attack as a team."
