Rosslee admits AmaZulu striker shortage
By Football News
AmaZulu coach Craig Rosslee said his side are short of striking power but he is pleased with the return from injury of key players.
Rosslee take his bottom placed side to Cape Town this weekend for a meeting with fellow relegation strugglers Chippa United and is hoping a steady improvement will continue.
It will be the third game in charge for the former Ajax Cape Town coach since taking over from Roger Palmgren.
"I think we're making do with what we have at the moment. We're short of attacking players at the moment in the striking department and out wide as well. I'm looking at certain combinations upfront to try and unlock the defence," he said.
"I'm happy with Khulegani Madondo being back. The combination of him and Stanley (Kgatla) was fantastic (in the 1-1 draw with Bidvest Wits)."
Rosslee said there had been a 100 per cent improvement in the game against Wits at the weekend from his first game away against Black Leopards just days earlier.
"At the end of the day you have to take your hat off to the team because we came back from the Leopards game on Wednesday, had a day off on Thursday, and we had a light session on Friday. And we only really had a 45-minute session on Saturday heading up to the Wits game.
"What I'm happy about is that the guys have understood tactically what I'm looking to do and how I want to implement things.
"If they're disciplined and are following instructions and being flexible within the field of play, that's what I would like to see."
