KAIZER Chiefs midfielder Dumsani Zuma has admitted they face yet another potential upset when they visit AmaZulu in a DStv Premiership clash on Wednesday.

The match will take place at Jonsson Kings Park (3:30pm), however, Zuma believe that it is their responsibility to rescue themselves from their difficult situation.

After nine matches this season Chiefs have managed just one victory, four draws and four defeats.

That leaves them in 14TH position on the league table with just a point ahead of Black Leopards who are languishing at the bottom.  

Talking to the club website Zuma said it is up to them to lift themselves.

“Everyone knows the situation we are in and it is very important for us to get that win,” Zuma said.

“Everyone is very focused. We’ve put ourselves in this situation and we need to fight and get ourselves up on the league table. Winning is vital and so is collecting the points available to us.”

Chiefs have failed to win in their last seven league matches and Zuma is worried that AmaZulu could extend their difficult run.

The Chiefs midfielder says the arrival of coach Benni McCarthy who appears to have instilled confidence at Usuthu could complicate matters for them.

“From my experience, they are always a difficult opponent to play. Again, they have players and a new coach, so we don’t really know much about them. It is going to be a difficult one, but we know if we stick to our philosophy, we will do well,” said Zuma.

“We know very well it is hard to play against AmaZulu on their own turf. But we have to believe in ourselves and as we saw last season we scored late when we played them away. So, they test you, but you have to stick to your game plan and if you persevere, you can get a positive result.”
