Palmgren: Must stay focused

AmaZulu face a tough task in prying themselves off the bottom of the PSL standings as they hosts the high-flying University of Pretoria on Wednesday.

Usuthu have managed just one win all season, a 2-1 success over Moroka Swallows in September, but have lost five and drawn the other two to sit rock-bottom after eight games.

The Durban club also saw their Telkom Knockout dream come to an end on Saturday as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against fellow PSL strugglers Mamelodi Sundowns.

Ahead of the midweek tie, coach Roger Palmgren told his club's official website: "We have to keep our strong defence, especially the way we defended in the first half, and keep working hard like that.

"We also need to take care of the ball much better in the final third of the field."

AmaTuks, meanwhile, are currently second in the standings, six points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs, who saw off Golden Arrows on Tuesday.

Steve Barker's men have suffered just one defeat so far in their debut Premiership season, winning four and drawing the other three.
