Cape Town City mentor Eric Tinkler says he is not thinking about AmaZulu’s recent in-form under the tutelage of Brandon Truter but only about what his side can do.
City are set to take on Usuthu at DHL Stadium for their penultimate DStv Premiership match on Saturday, 14 May. The kick-off is at 15:00.
However, Tinkler admitted that it would be another fight to the finish as the KwaZulu-Natal outfit got a lot of talented players.
On the other hand, it is no secret that there is a collective desire at the Cape club to secure a Caf Champions League spot in their remaining last two league matches.
The Citizens are currently flourishing second on the DStv Premiership table with 48 points, whereas AmaZulu are placed 7th on the log standings with 40 points. They have each played 28 matches.
“We have come to the business end of the season where everyone is looking to finish off strong whether be it in the top four, top eight, be happy to avoid relegation or whether be you guys are going to be keeping your job or not. You know, that’s the harsh reality of professional football,” said Tinkler.
Meanwhile, Tinker reckons that they have got themselves to save themselves.
“So, for us is important to focus on ourselves and rely on no one but ourselves. Also, to continue with what we have been doing since the turn of the year, which is believing in ourselves, working at the high intensity and unity that we have within the squad, and the confidence that we are currently having in our ability,” he added.
“We know it’s gonna be a tough game because AmaZulu are a good team with a lot of talented players, and again we gotta be on our best because it doesn’t matter who you played last week.”
