AmaZulu goalkeeper and captain Tapuwa Kapini says Wednesday evening’s KZN derby will be one of their toughest encounters of the season
Usuthu edged Arrows in the first round at the King Zwelithini Stadium in November where an own-goal from keeper Virgil Vries and a second from Bongani Mbele secured all three points with Mzivukile Tom’s effort proving to be nothing more than a consolation.
With AmaZulu hoping to secure their top-eight spot and Arrows bidding to improve on their current position off 11th and secure their top-flight status, this midweek clash will no doubt live up to its billing.
Kapini told the club’s official website: “It’s a derby and one of the toughest games we’ll have in the second round. When we play them in friendlies, the tackles that come, show that it’s always tough.
“All that is left is for us as AmaZulu to do our best to win so that our supporters can go home happy.
“The pressure is on no doubt. We’ve been doing very well so far but they also have some experienced players who will be tough to beat.”
