Since he arrived in KwaZulu-Natal in mid-December last year, Benni McCarthy has changed the trajectory of the Durban side, which has been under new ownership since the start of the 2020/21 campaign.

He has taken Usuthu from fighting to avoid relegation to vying for DStv Premiership credentials as they now hold the second spot on the log standings.

AmaZulu are back in action next week, Tuesday, 11 May, against Baroka FC as they continue to apply pressure on log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Kick-off will be at 15:00.
