As AmaZulu prepares to face TS Galaxy in the Carling Knockout semifinals at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday, Wayde Jooste has urged his teammates to find that little bit extra that will enable them to win silverware.

Along with Ben Motshwari and George Maluleka, Jooste, a former Orlando Pirates defender is one of the few Usuthu players to have won a trophy at senior level.

As he looked ahead to the weekend, he said the responsibility of communicating exactly what was at stake rested on the senior players within the squad.

Speaking to the media he said: “It’s not only me who has won things before; there’s a handful of guys as well. With all our experiences, we can help each other.

“It’s very important for us to use our experiences of winning cups… just to make the other guys [who’ve never won anything in the past] understand that if we do win this semifinal, what is at stake.

“We must make them aware that winning this cup would see them make history for themselves as individuals,” he said.

Usuthu have already won once this season against Galaxy, but Jooste said that no conclusions could be drawn from the earlier encounter.

“I don’t think the game we will play on Sunday will be the same as the game we played against them in the league.

“You can play the same team twice or three times in a short space of time, but those games won’t be the same,” he said.

AmaZulu versus TS Galaxy kicks off at 3pm on Sunday afternoon. The winner will face the winner of the other semifinal between Richards Bay and Stellenbosch FC in the final.
