Amazulu aims to silence Supersport strikers
Amazulu do battle with Supersport United in a PSL clash at the Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight.
JOHANNESBURG - Amazulu defender Marc van Heerden admits his side will need to keep Supersport United striker Dino Ndlovu quiet if Amazulu are to claim a victory at the Lucas Moripe Stadium tonight.
Van Heerden knows that his side will need to silence Ndlovu, who started his Supersport United career with a debut goal against Orlando Pirates, if Amazulu are to claim a much-needed three points.
"Whoever they start, whether its Dino, Brad or Niang, all three of them are dangerous, and we'll need to keep an eye out for them. Dino obviously has experience in Europe, so it will be important to keep him at bay. If we can do that, I think half our job would be done."
Ndlovu, on a season-long loan from Maccabi Haifa, says he is not yet thinking about making his stay with Supersport United permanent, as he is just focusing on scoring goals for the team.
"I'm taking it one game at a time, and we'll see what happens with transfers and contracts at the end of the season. But so far I'm just enjoying my stay, and if I do well then hopefully they'll let me stay."
Nhlanhla Shabalala, John Arwuah and Ruzaigh Gamildien joined Amazulu during the transfer window, and van Heerden admits that the quality of the new players means they have settled in very quickly into the side.
"They've settled in very well because it's pretty simple to slot into our system. The guys have welcomed them, and I think the additions are very exciting, quality additions and I expect them to do very well."
