Amazulu caretaker coach, Ayanda Dlamini, will take charge of his first match against Cape Town City in the DStv Premiership on Sunday.
Dlamini took over from Folz, who was redeployed to the role of technical director, advising the club president Sandile Zungu, and his mandate is to fight for the remaining 18 points that are on offer.
“Preparations for the Cape Town City game have been good; this is my third day since I took over [as head coach from Romain Folz],” said Dlamini.
“We are playing a very tough match in Cape Town away, it’s never easy to go there. The mood is good, the players understand the situation we are in but we are all positive.”
Only five points separate 12th placed Usuthu and Marumo Gallants at the bottom of the table. And if Amazulu loses to Cape Town City, they could find themselves fighting relegation for the remaining five matches.
“If you look at the log table, we are number twelve at the moment. If we get result everything changes because you win one game you are in the top eight.
“But if we lose, the situation gets worse. We know what is expected from us and we know what we want. But I’m hoping for a very good game.”
