Magubane insists AmaZulu will survive

AmaZulu midfielder Sphelele Magubane insists the club are ready to fight for their Absa Premiership survival when football returns, and is confident the club will be in the top flight next season.

Usuthu sit precariously in the relegation playoff position, and just three points ahead of bottom side Black Leopards with six games remaining.

But the flip side is they are only four points off Cape Town City in 10th position, and Magubane knows a couple of wins could see them rise rapidly up the table.

“We are winners and we do not quit,” he told his club’s website. “I have no doubt that we will stay up in the PSL when the season resumes. We have a good squad with a lot of quality players.

“Every family goes through a rough patch, or tough season in our case. So, we are facing a struggle to survive in the league.

“However, it is about how we overcome the challenge we are facing or how we handle the situation, we are currently facing.”

The former Lamontville Golden Arrows midfielder has had a limited role this season due to injury, but was more prominent just before the break in the campaign due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“I have not performed badly this season, but I know that I can do even better and help the team. The thing is I was out of action for quite some time. So, I’m still lacking match fitness which is something that I will work on.”
