Coach Benni McCarthy is delighted to have led AmaZulu to yet another win after Usuthu beat TS Galaxy 2-1 in a DStv Premiership fixture at King’s Park in Durban on Saturday.
Lehlohonolo Majoro scored a brace for Usuthu while Lindokuhle Mbatha netted for the Rockets.
The win has taken second-placed Usuthu’s points tally to 44 from 12 wins, eight draws and four losses.
“Three more points for us. I’m very delighted. I’m very happy with the performance, the attitude from the players, the way we handled ourselves. We started the game really well. We didn’t wait to see what the opposition would bring to us,” the Usuthu coach said.
“When we are playing at home we try and be clinical, we try and be direct, we try and take the fight to anybody. We were slightly a bit disappointed with our last game against Mamelodi Sundowns where we didn’t get the three points. Three days after Sundowns this is a perfect way to bounce back. I’m very happy with the overall performance from every single player.”
Rockets coach Owen da Gama, meanwhile, admitted that they were poor, especially in the first half of the match.
“Unfortunately, it was not our day. We defended very poorly in the first half. Clearly, some of the players are a bit stale,” Da Gama said.
Usuthu’s next game is against a stubborn Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday (17h00) while the Rockets visit Baroka FC at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane on the same day.
