Amazulu head coach Joey Antipas has praised the fighting spirit shown by his side at the weekend when they came from two goals down to draw 2-2 against Thanda Royal Zulu in the National First Division match.

Thanda Royal Zulu have a firm grip at the top and have an eight point lead at the top after 18 games.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Antipas was full of praise for his players “I give credit to the boys for the fight back, and we almost stole it.

‘We had two goals that were disallowed, especially Mabhuti Khenyeza’s goal.

Despite being in 7th and trailing the log leaders by 12 points, Antipas remains hopeful of leading his team back into the ABSA Premiership.

“I believe it’s still open. Thanda are running away with it but play-off place is still open. We just have to work harder and take it game by game.” Amazulu trail second placed Royal Eagles by four points.

Meanwhile recent signing Ovidy Karuru was named on the bench for the game against Thanda Royal Zulu while former CAPS United defender Stephen Makatuka started.
