Chippa United v AmaZulu

AmaZulu and Chippa United face off in an Absa Premiership bottom-of-the-table clash at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

AmaZulu are currently at the bottom of the standings with 20 points. And although Chippa are in a much better 11th-position, the sides are only separated by two points which makes it an even more important match.

The Chilli Boys will need to lift themselves after a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Bidvest Wits in the Nedbank Cup last 16.

And their Zimbabwean mentor has put their lack of recent success due to their ineffectiveness in front of goal.

"We have strikers, but at the end of the day they need to know their business on the field," Mapeza said.

"We cannot keep on reminding them that in order to be the top scorer you have to hit the target.

"We have to keep working hard. We have to put more focus on the league games. We will see how the season progresses."

While Chippa can score goals, they have proven themselves to be leaky at the back and this is something AmaZulu winger Talent Chawapiwa says his side are looking to take advantage of.

“Chippa United are a ball playing team, but not as convincing when it comes to defending," Chawapiwa said.

"If we can capitalise on that, we stand a chance of collecting all three points.

"The support we have been receiving from the people who follow and support the club has been great, it is very encouraging.”
