Cape Town - AmaZulu head coach Jozef Vukusic is adamant that there is no cause for concern at the club because everyone is committed to turning their season around.

Usuthu find themselves at the bottom of the Absa Premiership standings after losing 1-0 to Orlando Pirates on Saturday.

However, they are level on points with Polokwane City and Black Leopards, and Vukusic remains optimistic that they can get out of the relegation zone after showing signs of promise against the Buccaneers.

"I don't feel I am alone in this battle [against relegation]. We must survive and I believe we'll survive. The management, the players and my technical staff have been responding well, giving their all," said Vukusic, as quoted by SowetanLive.

"I don't spend even one second going into a direction of speaking about rumours and things like that. We know what we must do and we're positive that we'll turn it around. Everything is under control."

He added: "Performances like this are motivating. We want to keep playing like this and hope something can come out of that."

AmaZulu's next league encounter will be a massive opportunity as they host fellow strugglers Polokwane City on Sunday.
